Distinctive Feature Codes in the Short-Term Memory of Children
Eimas, Peter D.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 19, 2, 241-234, Apr 75
Describes two experiments which investigated the use of distinctive feature codes in the storage of phonetic encoding information by 6- and 7-year-olds during short term memory tasks. A total of 106 children were presented with 30 lists of consonant-vowel syllables for recall. Data indicate that children encode the consonantal phones into sets of unique features which are recalled independently at times. (LLK)
