English and Spanish Versions of a Memory Test: Word-Length Effects versus Spoken-Duration Effects.
Miranda, Jose P., Jr.; Valencia, Richard R.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v19 n2 p171-81 May 1997
Uses "word length" (syllable count) and "spoken duration" to examine cross-language equivalence of tests measuring short-term memory. Although the English and Spanish versions of the Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test had considerably different word length, the performance of bilingual college students did not differ between tests. Spoken duration quantification did not differ between tests. Contains 28 references. (SV)
