Invitation: Word Study


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.

Our final aim is to collect the word associations for 45.000 words. To reach this goal, we are still looking for a large number of persons of all ages. Help us and send this link of our website to your family, friends or colleagues:
