Normative data for the 56 categories of Battig and Montague (1969) in Spanish
In this study, production data for exemplars in the 56 categories of Battig and Montague were collected from a pool of 284 young adults who were native speakers of Spanish using an exemplar production task and indices of frequency, rank, and lexical availability for the exemplars of each category are provided in a computerized database.
Validation of the Van Overschelde et al. (2004) category norms: Results from five experiments
Van Overschelde, Rawson, and Dunlosky (2004) collected category/exemplar norms from over 600 participants at three American universities. For each of 70 categories, participants generated as many
Category production norms for 117 concrete and abstract categories.
We present a database of category production (aka semantic fluency) norms collected in the UK for 117 categories (67 concrete and 50 abstract). Participants verbally named as many category members as
Category norms with a cross-sectional sample of adults in the United States: Consideration of cohort, age, and historical effects on semantic categories
This paper describes normative data for newly collected exemplar responses to 70 semantic categories described in previous norming studies (Battig & Montague, Journal of Experimental Psychology,
French categorization norms for 70 semantic categories and comparison with Van Overschelde et al.’s (2004) English norms
These 70 categories constitute the widest French categorization norms to date and will be of use to studies in the fields of both linguistics and psycholinguistics, and should prove useful for bilingual and/or cross-linguistic studies.
The Centre for Speech, Language and the Brain (CSLB) concept property norms
A new and large set of property norms that are designed to be a more flexible tool to meet the demands of many different disciplines interested in conceptual knowledge representation, from cognitive psychology to computational linguistics are introduced.
Stable and Dynamic Properties of Category Structure Guide Imaginative Thought
Previous research has shown that category exemplars vary in how accessible they are within their categories, and that more accessible exemplars are more likely than less accessible ones to be used as
The Replicability of the Negative Testing Effect: Differences Across Participant Populations
The results indicate that the negative testing effect is replicable but is subject to limitation related to the participant population, and an analysis in terms of the relationship between cognitive ability and memory predicted this pattern of results.
Normative ratings for 111 Swedish nouns and corresponding picture stimuli
Normative ratings are a means to control for the effects of confounding variables in psycholinguistic experiments. This paper introduces a new dataset of normative ratings for Swedish encompassing
Analyzing the structure of animacy: Exploring relationships among six new animacy and 15 existing normative dimensions for 1,200 concrete nouns.
Animacy is an important word variable (especially for episodic memory), yet no norms exist in the literature. We present a complete, usable normative data set of 1,200 relatively concrete nouns
