Memory for Words, Synonyms, and Translations
Kolers, Paul A.; Gonzalez, Esther
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory, v6 n1 p53-65 Jan 1980
Synonyms within languages were compared with exact repetition of words as aids to recall. Interlingual synonyms had effects identical to those of exact repetition, whereas intralingual synonyms were less effective than exact repetition. Bilingual equivalence of words does not appear to be due to common underlying semantic structures. (Author/RD)
