Abstract

Free recall of CVC trigrams was studied as a joint function of two levels of meaningfulness and four levels of formal intralist similarity. For low meaningfulness CVC's the lowest level of similarity resulted in recall superior to all of the other levels, while there was no significant difference among the other three levels. For the high meaningfulness trigrams the third level of similarity was significantly poorer than the other three levels. Meaningfulness was found to affect the number of syllables correctly recalled but not to affect the rate of learning.
