<p>This study examined the interactive relationship between semantic, thematic, and associative word pair strength in the prediction of judgments and cued-recall performance. One hundred MTurk participants were shown word pairs of varying relatedness, and asked to judge these word pairs for their semantic, thematic, and associative strength. After completing a distractor task, participants then completed a cued recall task. Both judgment ability and recall performance were predicted by the three-way interaction of semantic, thematic, and associative word-pair norms, but the type of judgment did not affect recall or judgments. For low semantic feature overlap, thematic and associative strength were competitive: as thematic strength increased, associative predictiveness decreased. However, this trend reversed for high semantic feature overlap, wherein thematic and associative strength were complimentary as both set of simple slopes increased together. This result suggests that the amount of semantic feature overlap influences the predictiveness of associative and thematic word norm strength.</p> <p>-- erin buchanan, Ph.D. Associate Professor Department of Psychology Missouri State University ErinBuchanan@missouristate.edu<a href="&#109;&#97;&#105;&#108;&#116;&#111;&#58;&#69;&#114;&#105;&#110;&#66;&#117;&#99;&#104;&#97;&#110;&#97;&#110;&#64;&#109;&#105;&#115;&#115;&#111;&#117;&#114;&#105;&#115;&#116;&#97;&#116;&#101;&#46;&#101;&#100;&#117;" rel="nofollow">&#69;&#114;&#105;&#110;&#66;&#117;&#99;&#104;&#97;&#110;&#97;&#110;&#64;&#109;&#105;&#115;&#115;&#111;&#117;&#114;&#105;&#115;&#116;&#97;&#116;&#101;&#46;&#101;&#100;&#117;</a> 417-836-5592 PI: The Doom Lab<a href="http://www.aggieerin.com" rel="nofollow">http://www.aggieerin.com</a></p>
