Word Length and the Structure of Short-Term Memory
Baddeley, Alan D.; And Others
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 14, 6, 575-589, Dec 75
Experiments explored the hypothesis that immediate memory span varies with length of recalled words. Relationships between memory and word length, temporal duration, reading speed and visual and auditory presentation were investigated. Results are interpreted in terms of a phonemically-based store of limited temporal capacity with varied functions. (CHK)
