Mnemonic versus Nonmnemonic Vocabulary-Learning Strategies: Additional Comparisons.
Pressley, Michael; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, v74 n5 p693-707 Oct 1982
The keyword method of vocabulary learning was compared with five methods designed to increase semantic processing of the definitions of vocabulary words. The method enhanced vocabulary/definition (associative) learning, but not definition (response) learning per se. In contrast, the semantic conditions tended to increase nonassociative learning of the definitions. (Author/PN)
