Abstract

Repeated interjection of a single irrelevant word into sentences, anomalous word-strings, anagrammatic word-strings, and word-lists provides a kind of verbal noise which may amplify the effects of linguistic constraints in immediate memory. In 15 normal Ss such verbal noise significantly decreased immediate recall of word-strings lacking syntactic structure or semantic coherence or both, but had no significant effect on recall of sentences.
