Watkins, Marley W. – Psychological Assessment, 2006
According to J. B. Carroll's (1993) 3-stratum theory, performance on any subtest reflects a mixture of both 2nd-order and 1st-order factors. To disentangle these influences, variance explained by the general factor should be extracted first. The 1st-order factors are then residualized, leaving them orthogonal to the general factor and each other.…

Markowitz, Judith A.; Franz, Susan K. – 1983
Word concepts have long been recognized as an integral part of intelligence, and word definition tasks are frequently used to measure them.
