Full text: Semantics of ownership

page provided numbered spaces for subjects to list 10 
examples of things they owned and 10 examples of things they 
did not own. The instructions for the first section were as 
Complete the column on the left first, and then 
do the column on the right. Do not jump back and 
forth between lists. Just list examples however they

listed. Use the following answer scores: 
IL = Does not apply at all 
2 = Applies somewhat 
© = Applies mostly 
= Applies completely 
The upper left hand corner of each page has a 
space for writing in one of the items you have listed. 
The item codes are "0" for "OWNED" and "N" for "NOT 
OWNED", so that "Item N-4" means the fourth item in
