The role of semantic content of spoken words and the effect on serial recall
2008 (English)Conference paper, Poster (with or without abstract) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

With relevance to auditory alarm design, the aim with this study was to investigate if semantic content of words (Negative, Neutral, Non-words and Action words) and the way words are spoken ("urgent" and "calm") interrupt performance in serial recall when applying a deviant paradigm. Subjective ratings of perceived "Urgency" and "Attention grabbing" were also measured. An interruption in recall was found caused by the words, but no effects were related to the semantic content or to the way they were spoken. Interestingly, results showed that participants rated action words as more urgent and attention grabbing than neutral words and non-words. However, neutral words generated higher ratings than the non-words. Participants also experienced higher urgency and attention grabbing effect by words that were spoken "urgent" than those spoken "calm", independent of whether they were negative or neutral. In conclusion it is argued there is a dissociation between subjective and objective measurements.
