Investigating Word Modalities
|Goal||Determine if certain words are associated to different senses.|
|Task||Complete an online questionnaire.|
The experiment involves deciding whether given words are associated to different sensory modalities (sight and sound). You will be asked to complete an online questionnaire, assessing the sensory modality with which everyday words are most associated. This should take approximately 20 minutes and must be completed in one session. You will be presented with a list of words and asked to decide how much the given word gives you a sense of being auditory, visual or both. Each modality is rated from 1 to 6, where 1 is 'not at all' and 6 is 'very much'.
All answers will be given anonymously, and you will only be asked to indicate your age, gender, nationality, and English language proficiency. The data will be stored on a secure network and only members of the research group will have access to the data. They will be kept securely for a minimum of 10 years in the Department of Psychology in accordance with good research practice. Results from groups of individuals, without any means of identifying the individuals involved, may be written up in project reports or academic papers, or presented at conferences.
