Abstract

Words that an individual has experienced frequently are recognized more easily, when presented very briefly or in a noisy backgound. than words experienced less frequently. This word frequency effect has been shown for a variety of verbal materials. In a recent experiment using homographic English words, by Rubenstein, Garfield and Millikan, however, an anomolous result was observed.
