Full text: Semantics of ownership

Aa A 
sources, It seemed possible that the correlation may have 
been due to the frequent listing in both recall tasks of 
items defining territorial spaces, e.g. dwellings, cars, 
land, etc. A number of categories define items that could 
contain people and define territorial space: Land & 
Property, Dwellings, Cars, Businesses, Aircraft, Boats, 
Vacation Property, Heavy Vehicles, Trailers & Campers, Areas 
of a Home, and Farms. When items from these 11 categories 
were removed, the correlation between the two listings did 
not decrease (r = .48, p < .01). 
Analysis of Criteria Judgements 
Each subject judged each of the 12 criteria of 
ownership in terms of both its applicability to each of 
their own recall items and its merit as a general argument 
for ownership. The goal of the analyses of these criteria 
judgements was to determine the relative priority of the 
criterion in each of the judgement conditions. First, the 
multiple randomizations of the responses on "the 
questionnaires were unsorted. (See Appendix L for a listing 
of the unrandomizing program.) Then each subject's 
judgements of the applicability of the criteria to their 
recall exemplars were averaged across the 10 exemplars of 
things owned and the 10 exemplars of things not owned. On 
nine instances, subjects had omitted a judgement and on 
those instances the averaging was on nine rather than 10
