Golden Gate Exhibit Hall
This study investigates how people judge the frequency of occurrence of one word given information on the frequency of occurrence of another word. The findings suggested that the rules by which people make frequency estimation may depend more on the emotional impact these words elicited than on their naturally occurring frequencies in the environment.
