THE EFFECT OF WORD ASSOCIATIONS ON THE RECOGNITION OF FLASHED WORDS.
SAMUELS, S. JAY
THE HYPOTHESIS THAT WHEN ASSOCIATED PAIRS OF WORDS ARE PRESENTED, SPEED OF RECOGNITION WILL BE FASTER THAN WHEN NONASSOCIATED WORD PAIRS ARE PRESENTED OR WHEN A TARGET WORD IS PRESENTED BY ITSELF WAS TESTED. TWENTY UNIVERSITY STUDENTS, INITIALLY SCREENED FOR VISION, WERE ASSIGNED RANDOMLY TO ROWS OF A 5 X 5 REPEATED-MEASURES LATIN SQUARE DESIGN. THE EXPERIMENTAL CONDITIONS WERE FACILITATION, INTERFERENCE, NEUTRAL, CONTROL 1, AND CONTROL 2. THE SUBJECTS RECOGNIZED WORDS UNDER THE FIVE TREATMENT CONDITIONS IN A COUNTER-BALANCED DESIGN. THE SUBJECTS' SPEED OF RECOGNITION WAS THE AVERAGE OF THE FIRST AND SECOND CORRECT REPORT. ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE WAS USED TO ANALYZE THE DATA. THERE WAS NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE AMONG THE GROUPS IN SPEED OF WORD RECOGNITION. NO TARGET WORDS WERE READ FASTER. THE TREATMENT EFFECT OF WORD ASSOCIATION ON THE SPEED OF RECOGNITION WAS HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT. A DISCUSSION OF FACTORS WHICH INFLUENCE SPEED OF READING WHEN READING MEANINGFUL CONNECTED PROSE IS PRESENTED. REFERENCES AND TABLES ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (CHICAGO, FEBRUARY 6-10, 1968). (BK)
