Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Previous results have shown that Ss find it more difficult to complete a sentence when the end, rather than the beginning of the sentence has been specified in advance. The results of the present experiment demonstrate that this effect is maintained when no constraint is placed on the length of the completion.
