Although numerous researchers have hinted at commands falling into both categories of form and specificity (Elrod, 1987; Glass, 1988; Houlihan & Jones, 1990; Houlihan et al., 1994; Kuczynski & Kochanska, 1990b), Forehand and McMahon (1981) were the only researchers to formally identify commands by both their form and specificity/feasibility.
While some studies look at commands as one category (Strain et al., 1983), others break commands into only those of alpha and beta type (Williams & Forehand, 1984; Forehand et al., 1979; Peed et al., 1977), while other studies have indicated that a more specific command type may effect compliance (Kuczynski & Kochanska, 1990b).
