SUBVOCAL SPEECH DURING SILENT READING.
MCGUIGAN, FRANK JOSEPH
COVERT BEHAVIOR HAS POTENTIALLY GREAT SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL IMPORTANCE, THOUGH PRESENT KNOWLEDGE OF THIS RESPONSE CLASS IS MEAGER. SCIENTIFICALLY, COVERT BEHAVIOR HAS BEEN STUDIED FOR TWO REASONS--(1) BECAUSE OF ITS INTIMATE RELATION TO THE "THOUGHT PROCESSES," AND (2) BECAUSE IT IS PART OF THE REALM OF BEHAVIOR THAT THE PSYCHOLOGIST SEEKS TO UNDERSTAND--A SCIENCE OF BEHAVIOR THAT CONFINED ITSELF TO OVERT RESPONSES WOULD BE, AT BEST, INCOMPLETE. THE BROAD PURPOSE OF THE RESEARCH REPORTED HERE IS TO INCREASE THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE NATURE AND FUNCTION OF COVERT BEHAVIOR. THIS REPORT CONSISTS OF SIX SECTIONS. THE PROBLEM FOR EACH SECTION IS DEVELOPED SEPARATELY, AS ARE THE METHODS OF ATTACKING EACH PROBLEM, THE RESULTANT FINDINGS, THE DISCUSSION, AND CONCLUSIONS. THE REPORT DOCUMENTS THE OCCURRENCE OF HEIGHTENED COVERT ORAL BEHAVIOR IN A VARIETY OF SITUATIONS, AND THE FINDINGS STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOR IS BENEFICIAL TO THE INDIVIDUAL IN SOME WAY. THE RESULTS ARE ENCOURAGING AND FORM THE BASIS FOR A MORE SUBSTANTIAL ATTACK ON COVERT BEHAVIOR. TABLES, FIGURES, AND BIBLIOGRAPHIES ARE INCLUDED. (AUTHOR/BL)
