The Effect of the Integrated Keyword Method on Vocabulary Retention and Motivation

I just found this PDF online:

The Effect of the Integrated Keyword Method on Vocabulary Retention and Motivation by Joern Hauptmann:
http://www.keyword-method.de/own_docs/pdf/thesis.pdf

I attempt in this thesis to close this gap by providing empirical data on how effective both methods are (cf. Ch. 9). The wider aim is to give a coherent view of the concept of the mnemonic Keyword Method with all its facets, including its possible effect on motivation. From this emerge several specific research questions.

I haven’t had time to read it yet, but thought people might be interested.

What is the Integrated Keyword Method?

Nor do I, apparently, I had to scan the first 30 pages where he disses everybody else’s work before I found any concrete discussion of the Key Word Method (KWM). From there followed what looks like a very interesting discussion on verbal vs visual encoding and theories of memory. But by that time I had already lost the will to live… Maybe later.

Others might be wise to step over my dead body and start at p30 :slight_smile:

Thanks Josh
