The Effects of Redundant Communications on Listeners: When More Is Less.
Sonnenschein, Susan
Child Development, v53 n3 p717-29 Jun 1982
Three experiments investigated the conditions under which redundant verbal information would facilitate a listener's performance. Kindergarteners, first graders, and fourth graders were asked to select which of several groups of pictures a message (either redundant or constructive) described. Verbal redundancy was found to facilitate only older childrens' performance. (Author/MP)
