Presents a study in which experimental manipulation of combinations of nonverbal and verbal immediacy allowed researchers to more precisely test these causal links in relation to recall, learning loss, and affective learning. Notes that higher verbal immediacy in the experimental manipulations, when combined with higher and lower nonverbal immediacy, was not observed to produce greater cognitive learning. (SG)
