Full text: Semantics of ownership

257, p < .01] and the things not owned [chi-square(3,N=711) 
= 79, P < .01]. 
Finally, the size measure was regressed against the 
serial recall positions for both things owned and things not 
owned. The relationship of size to recall order was 
statistically significant for both the recall listings of 
owned things (r = -.43, p < .01) and things not owned (r = 
-.21, p < .01). To some small degree, larger exemplars 
tended to be recalled earlier, especially for the recall of 
owned things. With the territorial items removed, the 
effect of size on recall order decreased for both recall 
tasks, but remained significant for owned things (r = -.16, 
p < .01l) and was not different from chance for the things 
not owned (r = -.07, p > .0l1). Apparently, there was some 
very slight tendency for subjects to list territorial items 
early in their recall tasks. 
Recall Strategies 
The final follow-up question on the research 
questionnaire concerned the subjects' strategies for listing 
exemplars of things not owned. All but seven subjects 
answered the question and selected at least one of the five 
recall strategies provided. Forty-six subjects reported more 
than one recall strategy, and seven subjects described their 
strategies in their own words. The results appear in Table
