His the one that did the word lists on four groups for research into coding and found groups performed worse on acoustically similar words in short term memory and semantically similar words in long term memory.

So how does this mean words are coded acoustically in short term memory and semantically in long term memory

Unless ive got it wrong which i dont think i hav it makes no sense that if words are acoustically similar and groups perfomed worse when recalling these word lists in short term then how can this suggest words in short term are coded acoustically if ppl do worse then surely it means its not coded acoustically as there not recalling these words

I didn't get it at first, but my teacher said it's because it causes the most interference (as acoustically similar words for STM has the lowest %)

So participants performed worse, so had bad short term recall of acoustically similar words because they interfered too much with there stm memory suggesting stm is encoded acoustically. Thts kinda confusing but ill just remember as long its correct

This is because the acoustic similarity of the words confuse the STM when it is trying to encode information which shows that the STM does store information acoustically.
Again similarly with the LTM, since it encodes information semantically, it gets confused with words that have the same meaning, thereby finding it difficult to encode all the words and resulting in poor recalling.
This is the conclusion Baddeley drew.
