Abstract: Structural priming is a powerful method to inform linguistic theories. We argue that this method extends nicely beyond syntax, to theories of meaning. However, priming should still be seen as only one of the tools available for linguistic data collection. Specifically, because priming can occur at different, potentially conflicting levels, it cannot detect every aspect of linguistic representations.
