The present study investigated the effects of achievement incentive on the comprehension of time-compressed speech. Results indicated significant differences for motivation and for rate. Increased presentation rate did not significantly attenuate comprehension in the incentive treatments. However, accelerated speech produced a corresponding reduction in recall in the control groups.
