We present a localist, connectionist implementation of the Primacy model of immediate serial recall. We demonstrate a connectionist ordering mechanism which is localist and activation-based rather than based on association and illustrate the parallels between the Primacy model and current connectionist models of speech production. This enables us to give an integrated explanation both of phonological errors in short-term memory and of errors in speech production.
