Word Association Study

My sister sent me a link to this study, which is quite fun

They are looking for native english speakers to participate and you just need to give the first word that comes to your head.

The description on the website, probably says it best.

Quote:
On average, an adult knows about 40,000 words. Researchers in psychology and linguistics are interested in how these words are represented mentally. In this large-scale study we aim to build a network that captures this knowledge by playing the game of word associations. You can help us with this project by participating in this short and fun study.
The study consists of giving the first three words that come to mind for a list of 14 items.
All ages and nationalities are welcome, but please note that we do require all participants to be fluent English speakers.

Re: Word Association Study

I've done it too.

Not proud of it, though. My brain was on stand-by.

Re: Word Association Study

Very interesting...

My replies either had a literary or biblical tone, I found... sometimes both!
