In an early study, Collins and Quillian (1969) proposed a hierarchical network to explain the verification process involved in analytical sentences such as: (6) (7) A carnation is a flower. A carnation is a plant. ) appear at the lowest level; flower, tree, etc. are found on an intermediate level; and plant on a still higher level, and so on. In verifying a class inclusion, a processor searches for connections in the network between the activated concepts. The important aspect of their model is that verification time should depend on the distance between the subject and predicate term in the network.

Second, larger predicates are sometimes verified faster than smaller ones, although the distance of the latter should be shorter in the memory network. " Although both phenomena have been explained by Collins and Loftus (1975) in their network model by assuming that the relationships or connections between any two concepts may vary in strength, their explanation is not convincing. The assumption that varying associative strength operates between concepts does not explain the phenomena, as long as there is no way to determine the strength of a connection other than to measure it, for instance, in a verification or association task (cf.
