Norms Of Word Association from the Author: Leo Postman. Norms of Word Association contains a heterogeneous collection of word association norms. This book brings together nine sets of association norms that were collected independently at different times during a 15-year period. Each chapter is a self-contained unit. The order in which the norms are presented is arbitrary, although an attempt is made to group together norms that seem to belong together. The 1952 Minnesota norms are presented first, due to "age" and in recognition of the fact that a number of the norms that follow are direct outgrowths of this work. The next three norms in this collection are responses to the Russell-Jenkins stimuli obtained from subjects representing different linguistic communities. A summary of association norms collected from British and Australian subjects are reported along with association norms from German and French college students and French workmen. Four sets of norms that are not directly related to the 1952 Minnesota collection are included. The text will be of interest to historians and researchers in the field of verbal learning and verbal behavior.

A Sailor In The Sahara from the Author: Jamie Bruce Lockhart. Hugh Clapperton was one of Africa's greatest 19th-century explorers. Seemingly forgotten for years, he is now brought to life in Jamie Bruce Lockhart's magnificent new biography. Clapperton was born in Annan in the Scottish borders in 1788. Like many Scots of his generation, he saw service at sea as the path to fame and riches in the British Empire. During the Napoleonic Wars he served in the Mediterranean and the East Indies, and on the Great Lakes of Canada in the war with the United States. After his discharge as a lieutenant in 1817, boredom and thirst for adventure spurred him to exploration in Africa. He participated in two expeditions to map the Niger and the vast unexplored hinterland of the Guinea coast, and had command of the second of these - a full scale diplomatic mission to a region of huge importance to Britain's burgeoning political and commercial imperial interests. Jamie Bruce Lockhart has retraced Clapperton's footsteps and takes the reader through forest, desert and extremes of climate. In this vivid and sympathetic biography the reader witnesses Clapperton's adventures, hopes, fears, misfortunes and his ultimately lonely fate.
