Word Associations and the Development of Lexical Memory
Petrey, Sandy
Cognition, 5, 1, 57-71, Mar 77
Endel Tulving's distinction between "episodic" and "semantic" memory defines age differences in word association norms more comprehensively than the usual syntactic classifications. As subjects mature the principal development is an episodic-semantic shift. Young children associate primarily with the stimulus' perceived contexts, according to autobiographical experiences; adults associate words with their abstract lexical meaning. (Author/MV)
