Properties of Categories in Semantic Memory
Joelson, John M.; Herrmann, Douglas J.
American Journal of Psychology, 91, 1, 101-14, Mar 78
Properties of categories were investigated by analyzing 22 measures of the 56 categories used in the 1969 Battig and Montague norms. A factor analysis of the data indicated that categories in semantic memory possess at least four factors (category familiarity, category size, category-label printed frequency, semantic complexity) that may affect the use and comprehension of categories.
