    So Baddeley found that participants using STM to recall struggled the most with recalling acoustically similar words, whilst those who used LTM struggled the most with recalling semantically similar words. From this, he concluded that STM relies on acoustic coding and LTM relies on semantic coding.

    Can anyone please explain how he reached this conclusion?
