Therefore, in Condition A, two participants showed clear indication of the formation of equivalence classes, whereas two others showed results that could be interpreted as gradual emergence of equivalence.
In this study, we expected that participants would show prompt formation of equivalence classes in Condition A (as in de Rose et al.
This suggests that equivalence in translation, as in mathematics, refers to the state of having the same value, function, meaning, and so on (Merriam-Webster Dictionary) (2).
These researchers attempt to show some of the challenges faced in translation, where the degree of equivalence varies and there is not a complete match with the original words or texts.
This section discusses the application of conceptual, functional, sample, contextual, researcher and response equivalences to cross-cultural qualitative marketing research.
2006) is used to exemplify ways of addressing equivalences.
The phenomenon of stimulus equivalence was distinguished from the unidirectional conditional discriminations that could serve as prerequisites for emergent relations, and was further defined and formalized by Sidman & Tailby (1982).
As the first study to demonstrate stimulus equivalence with exclusively auditory stimuli, Dube et al.
Equivalence classes were trained on a desktop computer using a conditional discrimination procedure.
2008) found that normally capable adults who showed rapid emergence of stimulus equivalence relations also exhibited reliable select and reject relations in the blank comparison format.
The Color Test group were referred to as such because all of the stimuli presented in the basic conditional discrimination training were black, whereas the stimuli presented during the equivalence test were colored.
The purpose of the current experiment was to study in typically developing children (a) if the different types of stimulus sets, with and without familiar picture stimuli as nodes, influenced the number of trials to criterion during training of conditional discrimination and (b) the effects of responding in accord with equivalence as a function of different stimulus sets (abstract vs.
