The possibility of fast mapping (FM) promoting rapid lexical integration challenges complementary systems accounts of word learning. Here, we first question the diagnosticity of orthographic lexical competition prior to sleep as an indicator of lexical integration, given emerging evidence that the same pre-sleep effect can be found with explicit learning paradigms. Second, we describe a study that showed no evidence of accelerated lexical integration for spoken-word learning. This study also found no FM advantage when written materials were used . Taken together, the evidence does not convincingly demonstrate that FM can accelerate lexical integration in healthy adults.
