Subject: Phonosemantics experiments- participation invitation

Hello lurkers. All interested parties are invited to participate in a
series of phonosemantic experiments aimed at determining the shape of
subjects' unconscious mapping of form to meaning. Participants will be
given a subset of forms, semantic domains and meanings and then
utilize them in their own work with a group of subjects. The first set
of experiments will be along the lines of the famous mil- mal- mol
work by Edward Sapir published back in the 1920's, but covering a much
fuller range of possible forms and semantic domains. If you would like
to be included in this venture please contact me either by e-mail or
ground mail. Thanks much!
