Example text

Eighty Bengali undergraduate students volunteered to serve as subjects. One hundred adjectives in the Bengali language were given to 40 judges to rate each of them for its frequency of usage and degree of pleasantness or unpleasantness. The frequency of usage was measured in terms of a unipolar five-point scale with verbally labeled categories. Degree of affect, on the other hand, was measured on a bipolarfive-pointscale ranging from extremely pleasant to extremely unpleasant. Intensity of affect for any particular adjective was determined by taking its mean polarity score.

The three classifications were orientation (task versus ego), retention tests (recall versus recognition), and rated affect (P versus U affect of puzzles). The result of the analysis presented in Table 6 revealed two significant effects. f. f. 01). The reasons for obtaining these significant effects can be seen from the total and the mean number of puzzles retained by the subjects under various conditions. An examination of these data as presented in Table 7 indicated that under task-orientation retention was better than under egoorientation.

The subject was asked to rate these adjectives on each of the four evaluative scales in a similar manner to that of the initial rating. The booklets this time, however, not only contained an adjective with a scale below it as described earlier for the initial rating stage, but by the side of each adjective there also appeared the name of the community to specify to whom it was ascribed in the report. Thus for each subject, each adjective that appeared in the report earlier also appeared four times associated with either Bengali or Lampani as the case may be in a random sequence.
