If the cumulativeness
among the items described above fails to be empirically observed, the H-coefficient for the scale will suffer, and in the worst scenario, no scale may be formed that satisfies the scaling criterion of H [greater than] .
Learning process and cumulativeness
are other important sources of options.
As Scherer (1986) pointed out, "there has been neither continuity nor cumulativeness
in the area of the vocal communication of emotion" (p.
One of our goals in this work is to make all assumptions regarding cumulativeness
explicit, in the form of integrity constraints.

of economic science (pp.
I will now examine each of these areas, paying particular attention to the degree of cumulativeness
and the nature of knowledge, characteristics where important differences exist across the two sub-sectors.
of absorptive capacity and its effect on expectation formation suggest an extreme case of path dependence in which once a firm ceases investing in its absorptive capacity in a quickly moving field, it may never assimilate and exploit new information in that field, regardless of the value of that information.
