Belmore, Susan M.; And Others
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v21 n3 p338-51 Jun 1982
Presents studies to explore imagery at several levels of meaning, and use of imagery in analyzing implicit aspects of meaning. Studies using sentence verification task with pairs of concrete or abstract sentences concluded that concrete sentences are verified faster for explicit and implicit test items; paraphrases were verified more rapidly than inferences for concrete and abstract sentences.
