Abstract : Associative overlap, pattern of association and category membership of pairs of words were investigated in two paired-associate learning experiments, and word sets varying in two ways associatively were studied in a third experiment in which several stimuli were paired with a single response. Category membership influenced paired-associate learning, but amount and pattern of associative overlap did not. In the multiple stimuli learning situation, effects were observed in relation to both ways of measuring associative overlap. (Author)
