Retrieveal-Induced Forgetting in a Cross-Language Design

Norrgren, Marcus (2006)
Department of Psychology
Abstract
Retrieval-induced forgetting refers to the notion that remembering may sometimes cause forgetting of related but currently irrelevant items. This thesis aimed at investigating if this phenomenon generalizes to a cross-language design. The hypothesis was that retrieval-induced forgetting is induced also when performing retrieval-practice in a second language. Results confirmed the hypothesis but also indicated a trend of forgetting attributable to output-interference or contextual factors. The author discusses the possibility that the inhibitory mechanism of retrieval-induced forgetting might be working within a dimensional scale rather than exclusively on a conceptual item level.
