Associative learning
Associative learning

learning which happens when a connection or association is made,


usually between two things.


For example:


a When someone hears the word table, they may think of the word


food, because this word is often used with or near table. This is called association by contiguity.


b When someone hears the word delicate, they may think of the word fragile, because it has a similar meaning. This is called association by similarity.


c When someone hears the word happy, they may think of the word sad, because it has the opposite meaning. This is called association by contrast.


Associative learning theory has been used in studies of memory, learning, and verbal learning (Richard & Schmidt 2002, p. 36).
