Abstract

It was hypothesized that students in a group who heard a list of words sung to them, would remember more of those words than students in another group who simply heard the same words verbally said to them. Participants included 40 college students (25 female, 15 male). Participants were randomly assigned to each group in which they heard the same list of words sung or spoken. Results showed that students who listened to the list of words in song remembered more of the list than those who heard the words verbally.
