Abstract

Ninety-six subjects were given four test lists of words in a word reading task. The independent variable in this study were the frequency of words in the English language and the categorization of words into semantically similar sets. The reading time for each list was reported, and as expected, the main effects of frequency and categorization were significant. Combining the two conditions resulted in an additive effect and was contradictory to the interactional effect found by Becker (1979).
