Two experiments examined whether the association between word-learning, nonword repetition, and immediate serial recall observed in children also exists in normal adults. The experiments also introduce a novel paradigm for studying word-learning. Experiment 1 studied the performance of 52 adults in nonword repetition, immediate serial recall, and word-learning tasks, examining the correlation between these measures. The results indicate that the developmental relationships between all three… Expand
Individual differences in phonological learning and verbal STM span
TLDR
It is concluded that the efficiency of a process that creates phonological representations is related both to short-term capacity for verbal items, and to long-term phonological learning of the structure of novel phonological items. Expand
Phonological memory and vocabulary learning in children with focal lesions
TLDR
The results support previous reports that there are persistent processing impairments following early brain injury, and suggest that word learning, non-word repetition, and immediate serial recall may be relatively demanding tasks, and that their relationship is a fundamental aspect of the cognitive system.

Nonword repetition and word learning: The nature of the relationship
This article presents a theoretical framework designed to accommodate core evidence that the abilities to repeat nonwords and to learn the phonological forms of new words are closely linked. BasicExpand
Novel word acquisition in aphasia: Facing the word-referent ambiguity of natural language learning contexts
TLDR
The findings indicate that some people with aphasia can preserve the ability to learn a small novel lexicon in an ambiguous word-referent context and this learning and recognition memory ability was associated with verbal STM capacity, aphasic severity and the integrity of the left inferior frontal region. Expand
Serial position effects in nonword repetition
A growing body of research has emphasized the linkage between performance in immediate serial recall of lists, nonword repetition, and word learning. Recently, it has been reported that primacy andExpand
Short Article: The Hebb Repetition Effect as a Laboratory Analogue of Novel Word Learning
TLDR
It is argued that the Hebb repetition effect is a laboratory analogue of naturalistic vocabulary acquisition and suggests that a long-term phonological lexical representation developed during Hebb learning. Expand
Serial position effects in nonword repetition q
A growing body of research has emphasized the linkage between performance in immediate serial recall of lists, nonword repetition, and word learning. Recently, it has been reported that primacy andExpand
A computational model of nonword repetition , immediate serial recall , and nonword learning
A computational model is presented that tackles the issue of serial ordering both across word forms (as in list recall) and within word forms (as in nonword repetition). The model was set up toExpand
Children retain implicitly learned phonological sequences better than adults: a longitudinal study.
TLDR
It is concluded that children outperform adults in the retention over time of implicitly learned phonological sequences that will gradually consolidate into novel word-forms. Expand
The involvement of long-term serial-order memory in reading development: A longitudinal study.
TLDR
A positive association between order learning capacities and reading ability as well as weaker Hebb learning performance in early readers with poor reading skills even at the onset of reading instruction are observed. Expand

TLDR
