A test of four proposed new dimensions of semantic space
Four new dimensions of the Osgood semantic space, proposed by Bentler and LaVoie (1972), were tested utilizing the PI release design. The two dimensions of density and reality showed significant release from PI, but the dimensions of familiarity and organization did not. The results were discussed in terms of a second study, which showed measures of dependency of the four new dimensions upon the original three Osgood semantic differential dimensions.
