Abstract

The effect of size and color on identical and different forms that share the same name was examined in a simultaneous matching task with reaction time as the dependent variable. Both experiments revealed an increase in reaction time as a function of size and color for identical forms. In contrast, different forms showed no such effect. These results are in general consistent with those of Posner and Mitchell (1967) and the notion of anonymous visual operations that are analog in nature.
