If the short-term memory is acoustically encoded, why in studies such as Baddeley, have they found acoustically similar words to be harder to recall?

Portraying Studies should be possible by following the example of A-P-R-C, which remains for Points, Methodology, Results, Ends. "Methods" is a term that regularly covers Points and Methodology, while "Findings" covers Results and Ends. Point To see whether LTM encodes acoustically (in view of sound) or semantically (in light of significance). This is finished by giving members word records that are comparable in the manner in which they sound (acoustic) or their importance (semantic); if the members battle to review the word arrange, it proposes LTM is confounded by the comparability which implies this is the means by which LTM has a tendency to encode. IV This lab explore has a few IVs. (1) Acoustically comparable word list or acoustically divergent; (2) semantically comparable word list or semantically unique; (3) execution before 15 minutes "overlooking" postponement and execution after. IVs (1) and (2) are tried utilizing Autonomous Gatherings plan yet IV (3) is tried through Rehashed Measures. DV Score on a reviewing trial of 10 words; words must be reviewed in the right request (extremely, this is a trial of recollecting the word arrange, not simply the words) Test People from the Cambridge College subject board (for the most part understudies); they were volunteers. There were 72 out and out, a blend of people. There were 15-20 in each condition (15 in Acoustically Comparative, 16 in Semantically Comparative). Method The members are part into four gatherings, as per IV (1) and (2). Each gathering perspectives a slideshow of an arrangement of 10 words. Each word shows up for 3 seconds. In the Acoustically Comparable condition, the members get a rundown of words that offer a comparative sound (man, taxi, can, max, and so forth) however the Control amass get words that are on the whole straightforward one syllable words yet they don't sound the equivalent (pit, few, cow, pen, and so forth). In the Semantically Comparative condition, the words share a comparable significance (awesome, vast, enormous, colossal, and so on) yet the Control assembles get words that are detached (great, immense, hot, safe, and so on). The members in each of the 4 conditions at that point complete an "obstruction test" which includes hearing at that point recording 8 numbers three times. At that point, they review the words from the slideshow altogether. There are four "preliminaries" and (as you would expect) the members' improve each time they do it on the grounds that the words remain the equivalent. The words themselves are shown on signs around the room so the members just need to focus on getting the Request of the words right, not recalling the words themselves. After the fourth preliminary, the members get a 15-minute break and play out a random impedance errand. At that point, they are requested to review the rundown once more. This fifth and last preliminary is unforeseen. The words themselves are still in plain view; it is the request of the words the members need to review. Results Baddeley was intrigued to see whether Acoustic or Semantic Similitude made it harder to take in the words. He analyzed the scores of the members in the Comparative and Control conditions and gave careful consideration to whether they reviewed also in the fifth "overlooking" preliminary or whether there was a drop-off in scores.
