The order in which participants choose to recall words from a studied list of randomly selected words provides insights into how memories of the words are represented, organized, and retrieved. One pervasive finding is that when a pair of semantically related words e. This tendency to successively recall semantically related words is termed semantic clustering Bousfield and Sedgewick, ; Bousfield, ; Cofer et al. Measuring semantic clustering effects requires making assumptions about which words participants consider to be similar in meaning. Our results provide a number of useful insights into the interpretation of semantic clustering effects in free recall.

This allows category characteristics to be varied within Ss by using mixed lists, whereas previously only homogeneous lists could be employed. Download to read the full article text.
