Memory-Load and Concreteness in the Order of Dominance Effect for Verbal Concepts
Katz, Albert N.; Denny, J. Peter
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 16, 1, 13-20, Feb 77
Previous research has shown that concrete concepts are more readily attained than abstract concepts. In the present study this dominance effect was confirmed for verbal materials, even when instances and concepts were equivalent in instance frequency, meaningfulness and conjoint frequency. This effect was especially marked under high memory-load conditions. (CHK)
