The Effects of Alphabetic Organization on the Acquisition and Delayed Retention of Semantically Similar Words
Lauer, Patricia A.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory, 2, 2, 182-89, Mar 76
This experiment attempts to maximize orthographic while reducing semantic bases for processing by using lists of words from a single category (girl's first names), presenting the first letter as a cue for each word during both study and recall trials, and blocking together all words with the same first letter.
