Problem Solving as a Function of Abstract or Concrete Words
Cox, William F., Jr.
Contemporary Educational Psychology, 3, 1, 95-101, Jan 78
To detect the underlying structural relationship or chain among certain memorized pairs, two groups of undergraduates verbally reordered previously memorized pairs of either concrete or abstract nouns. The superior performance of the concrete word subjects was attributed to the differential effect of imaginal versus verbal encoding. (Author/CP)
