Plausibility Judgments versus Fact Retrieval: Alternative Strategies for Sentence Verification.
Reder, Lynne M.
Psychological Review, v89 n3 p250-80 May 1982
Judging plausibility is argued to be a more efficient strategy than direct retrieval (finding a propositional match) to judge a statement's truth. A proposed model contrasts the strategies in terms of verbatim memory and duration. Direct retrieval is faster when verbatim traces are strong, but plausibility judgment is more efficient over time.
