If you would like to suggest a new sequence, or disagree with the exsiting sequences please leave a comment.  Thank you.


The dataset for the experiments is comprised of 73 sequences of words that were collected in the following manner. Five computer science students were the subjects of sequences collection. Two of them were native English speakers.  Each one of the subjects suggested some sequences and verified all the sequences suggested by others. The sequences that were not unanimously agreed upon were removed from the test set, or changed to satisfy all the subjects.
