Reports 2 studies, with 64 college-aged adults, investigating the Binder-Estes transfer (novelty) effect after 2-choice successive discrimination training. Training stimuli were nonsense syllables, or Greek or English letters, presented in compounds which did not have any common components. Transfer results did not reveal any tendency for responding to be based on the least frequently occuring cue, suggesting that the novelty effect may be dependent upon the presence of common cues.
