Enhancement of 4-Year-Old Children's Memory Span for Phonologically Similar and Dissimilar Word Lists.
Cowan, Nelson; And Others
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v51 n1 p30-52 Feb 1991
List repetitions in lists with phonologically similar and dissimilar items were used to examine improvement in preschool children's recall. Cumulative repetition caused a moderate increase in memory span and the phonological similarity effect. Repeated serial order information was helpful for children's recall, but articulatory coding was not. (BC)
