Also, they stated what causes the actual interference is when two responses are competing for responses that should be produced. All in all, this can affect the reading reaction time. In some cases the reaction time can be as perfect. That is when it only has congruent word, and sometimes it may not be so perfect because of interference.
In the traditional Stroop effect, naming the print color of a word is delayed if the word itself is a color word which names a different color (e.g., responding "red" to the word "blue" displayed in red letters is slower than responding "red" to a red patch of color). Stroop interference is where "words are processed faster than are colors." It is true that reading words is faster than naming colors, but this seems to be a matter of response compatibility, rather than perceptual speed. Color words interfere with color naming because they are automatically processed. Aim: The aim of this study is to investigate the inference in perception of a Stroop color model compared to a simple black and white variation of the Stroop color model.
Stroop found that people found it harder to name what colour ink a word was written in if the word was the name of a different colour than if the word was colour neutral. Thus, an apparently automatic process, reading in this case, interfered with a controlled process, naming the colour of the ink, and made completing the task at hand harder. The experiment found that unconscious semantic processing of words on an unattended channel was intruding upon a task of naming ink colours. This was consistent with the Stroop effect. The extent of the effect was dependent on the neutrality of the control stimulus.

B. MFCC MFCC is based on human hearing perceptions which cannot perceive frequencies over 1Khz. In other words, in MFCC is based on known variation of the human ear’s critical bandwidth with frequency.
However, it may be unreasonable to expect general learners' dictionaries to cover comprehensively many learners' errors. Such information may be better placed in specialized learners' dictionaries which focus on common errors for a special language group such as with Japanese learners or Arab learners. This would be effective especially when the error is due to literal translation. On the other hand, if certain learners' errors such as rescued my l... ... middle of paper ... ...1999:123) show some examples of Arabic collocational ranges to illustrate that a SL does not match their English counterparts and vice versa: Table (12) examples of Arabic collocational ranges Arabic Collocations (SL) قسمة و نصيب Destiny قضاء و قدر Fate حلال و حرام Lawful and unlawful زيت و زعتر Oil and thymes (zatar) English Collocations (SL) Fish and chips سمك و شرحات بطاطا Bed and breakfast فطور و مبيت Alive and kicking حي يرزق As beautiful as a lark مثل القمر A school of whales سرب حيتان The literal translation of some English collocations into Arabic or vice versa may produce unnatural and sometimes comic effects.

The experiments have been used throughout the article to illustrate how the brain functions in response to interference and the students who were used demonstrated that incongruent reactions take more time to respond than the other reaction types.

Word length effect is the finding that the longer the words are that people need to remember, the fewer they can remember (Baddeley, Thompaon & Buchanan, 1975). In our research findings, there are three hypotheses; including letters that sound similar will be remembered worse than words sound dissimilar. Long words are remembered worse than short words. With long words presumably being more subject to error than are short words. Longer words are assumed to take more time to articulate, hence allowing a greater degree of forgetting, either from trace decay or from interference (Baddeley, 2001).
If students gain too much information to process in one sitting, could overlearning be a benefit or a burden for students? How much studying should they do and can they retain knowledge in time for the exam? My theory is to
This means that different situations can delay our memory processes. JSMF explains how memory makes it difficult for us to generate original ideas. JSMF explains heuristics; unconscious and fast ways of thinking that make reasoning easier. As heuristics are errors in thinking, these errors are related to poor encoding, as seen in UP. In addition, previous settings can sway how we react to information.
What are some problems associated with reliability assessed via the test-retest method? The problem with reliability assessed via test-retest is that it requires the same participants at different times; which makes it difficult to replicate (Kline, 2005). For example, they may be fewer participants. In addition, the longer the delay between tests the greater the possibility of variation in results; as well as, the participants have an opportunity to learn the test the second time around and can create different results (Kline, 2005). Lastly, it is very costly to run consecutive test (Kline, 2005).
