We are working to generate the largest dataset of compound RAT queries to date in American English. If you want to check some queries with our currently limited interface, check below.

If you want to use some of these queries in your research, or need a special set of queries designed, contact us and reference our upcoming paper:

  • Oltețeanu, Ana-Maria; Schultheis, Holger and Dyer, Jonathan B. - Constructing a repository of compound Remote Associates Test items in American English with comRAT-G, in: Behavior Research Methods, submitted July 2016

Generate a set of queries.

Order queries by:

  • No ordering. A random set of queries created by comRAT-G.
  • Order by the first word (alphabetical). For example, the first word in generated queries 1-5 are access, action, arena, bamboo, boys, etc.
  • Order by the second word (alphabetical).
  • Order by the third word (alphabetical).
  • Order by the answer word (alphabetical).
  • Frequency of favourable cases including the first word (numerical, ascending). For example, in an item generated by comRAT-G, the first word is journal and the answer papers; journal papers has frequency 32. This RAT item will appear before a query where the first word is fighter and the answer pilot, if fighter pilot has frequency 296; they will both appear before a query which has as first word family and as answer word farm, as family farm has frequency 455.
  • Frequency of favourable cases including the second word (numerical, ascending).
  • Frequency of favourable cases including the third word (numerical, ascending).
  • Total frequency of the first word (numerical, ascending). For example, a query which has as first word judiciary (total frequency 103) will appear before a query which has as the first word mathematics (total frequency 1498), and they will both appear before a RAT item which has as first word kitchen (total frequency 9080).
  • Total frequency of the second word (numerical, ascending).
  • Total frequency of the third word (numerical, ascending).
  • Probability based on the first word to find the answer. If in comRAT-G item Displays Units Washer (answer Window) the conditional probability of finding answer Window given the first query word Displays is 0.3776, this query will appear before query Starting Tipping Drop (answer Point), for which the conditional probability of finding answer Point given first word Starting is 0.4347.
  • Probability based on the second word to find the answer.
  • Probability based on the third word to find the answer.
  • Total probability of the answer to be found, assuming each RAT query word has an equal influence (non-weighted).
