Abstract:

The study contains an experimental investigation and theoretical analysis of the effects of limited reading time and the effects of imagery value, association value, and frequency of sentence words, in a task involving comprehension and subsequent verification of meaningful sentences. The theoretical analysis was concerned with how these word properties could be represented in a semantic network memory model and how their effects could be explained in terms of the memory structure and related processes.
