  1. Iconicity and Systematicity in Phonaesthemes: A Cross-Linguistic Study.Javier Valenzuela, Amandine Fregier & Jose A. Mompean - 2020 - Cognitive Linguistics 31 (3):515-548.
    This study aims to find out whether speakers of different language backgrounds are sensitive to semantic associations attached respectively to two purported phonaesthemes. Participants completed the task in oral and written conditions. They had to match phonaestheme-related definitions with either of two non-words. The results obtained indicate that participants significantly chose non-words beginning with /tr-/ when the definition activated a meaning related to forcible contact, and non-words starting with /fl-/ when the definitions made reference to fluids in the four languages.

  • A Prime Example of the Maluma/Takete Effect? Testing for Sound Symbolic Priming.David M. Sidhu & Penny M. Pexman - 2017 - Cognitive Science 41 (7):1958-1987.
    Certain nonwords, like maluma and takete, are associated with roundness and sharpness, respectively. However, this has typically been demonstrated using explicit tasks. We investigated whether this association would be detectable using a more implicit measure—a sequential priming task. We began with a replication of the standard Maluma/Takete effect before examining whether round and sharp nonword primes facilitated the categorization of congruent shapes. We found modest evidence of a priming effect in response accuracy. We next examined whether nonword primes affected categorization (...)

  • The Cultural Evolution of Structured Languages in an Open‐Ended, Continuous World.W. Carr Jon, Smith Kenny, Cornish Hannah & Kirby Simon - 2017 - Cognitive Science 41 (4):892-923.
    Language maps signals onto meanings through the use of two distinct types of structure. First, the space of meanings is discretized into categories that are shared by all users of the language. Second, the signals employed by the language are compositional: The meaning of the whole is a function of its parts and the way in which those parts are combined. In three iterated learning experiments using a vast, continuous, open-ended meaning space, we explore the conditions under which both structured (...)
