Working Memory and Distributed Vocabulary Learning.
Atkins, Paul W. B.; Baddeley, Alan D.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v19 n4 p537-52 Dec 1998
Tested the hypothesis that individual differences in immediate-verbal-memory span predict success in second-language vocabulary acquisition. In the two-session study, adult subjects learned 56 English-Finnish translations. Tested one week later, subjects were less likely to remember those words they had difficulty learning, even though they had studied those items more often. (Author/ER)
