This chapter applies dual coding theory to problems of meaning and semantic memory. Illustrative studies that bear directly on dual coding predictions concerning meaning and semantic memory processes and structures are reviewed. The review emphasizes the distinction between representational, referential, and associative levels of meaning as well as implications of the overall structural-processing model involving all three processing levels.

Keywords:   dual coding theory, representational meaning, referential meaning, associative meaning
