The participants were given a set of short sentences that expressed simple concepts.

Then they were asked to identify which of the sentences they had seen before. They identified the long sentences composed of the short sentences they had seen more readily than the short sentences themselves.

This suggests that participants automatically integrate concepts they see into schemas that integrate the concepts. Frznks of linguistic materials. Dissertation, University of Minnesota, The psychological reality of phrase-structure rules.

Alphabetical List Categorical List Memory: Cognitive Psychology 2 bransfordd, Results indicate that during an acquisition phase of the experiments, Ss spontaneously integrate the information expressed by a number of non-consecutively experienced but semantically related sentences into wholistic, semantic ideas, where these ideas encompass more information than any acquisition sentence contained. Ss’ subsequent attempts to recognize those exact sentences heard during acquisition are shown to be a function of the complete ideas acquired.

Thus, Ss are most confident of “recognizing” sentences expressing all the semantic relations characteristic of a complete idea, in spite of 11971 fact that such sentences expressed more information than was communicated by any single sentence on the acquisition list.


Ss become less confident of having heard particular sentences as ad function of the degree to which a sentence fails to exhaust all the semantic relations characteristic of a complete idea. The phenomenon of “idea acquisition and retention” is demonstrated experimentally and contrasted with an “individual sentence memory” point of view.
