Abstract

Reviews studies which have used various measures of meaningfulness to measure semantic satiation, and in other ways have attempted to test the effects of semantic satiation. It is concluded that the effects of the phenomenon labeled as semantic satiation have not been reliably measured and are in doubt. An attempt is made to link semantic satiation to what has been called the verbal transformation effect. An alternative approach to the study of semantic satiation is suggested.
