Baddeley (1966)

Baddeley constructed a pool of short, familiar words for each of four categories:

  • acoustically similar words (eg: mad, map, cad, cap, cat)
  • acoustically dissimilar words (eg: pen cow, pit, sup, day)
  • semantically similar words (eg: tall, high, broad, wide, big)
  • semantically dissimilar words (eg: foul, thin, late, safe, strong)

For each category, he presented a random sequence of five words and asked participants to write them down immediately after presentation
