Sloboda, John A.
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 15, 1, 93-101, Feb 76

Letter comparison time was found to increase when other irrelevant letters were present, regardless of whether or not the letters made up a word or a word-like configuration. Word comparison time was found to increase when distractors were similar to targets. (Author/RM)
