Abstract: On the basis of an empirical project this article describes the variables which should be considered in constructing contextual explanations (examples) intended to increase the omprehension and retention of word material. The effects of the variables discussed here have been tested within a partly hypothesis-testing, quantitative design. Additional learner-internal data have been gathered employing retrospective procedures.
