Pronunciation and Apparent Frequency in a Between-Subjects Design. Technical Report.
Wilder, Larry; And Others
College students were administered a list of middle-frequency words, in which individual words are presented from one to six times. Half the subjects pronounced the list, while the other half remained silent. On a subsequent frequency judgment task, pronunciation subjects failed to differ significantly from silent subjects on mean judgments of items presented only once; however, there were differences on these items as indexed by variance between and within subjects, as well as by mean total correct. Further, an analysis of judgments on "zero" items (not seen on the study list) indicated differences between silent and pronunciation subjects on all four measures. These results were contrasted with previous findings and explained within a frequency theory perspective. (Author)
