Qs: Semantic Priming Study in German

Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

We are preparing several semantic priming studies for which we need
semantically or associatively related words. The purpose of this online
query is to find a set of words which are related to particular German
nouns. Participants should therefore be native speakers of German.
Altogether, there will be 50 German nouns, and your task will be to come up
with 4 related nouns for each of these words (the first 4 words you can
think of, given the respective noun). The experimental instructions are
also in German. Thank you very much for your participation! The online
query can be found on


Sie werden in dieser Studie 50 deutsche Wörter auf dem Bildschirm sehen, zu
denen Sie intuitiv und spontan jeweils 4 bedeutungsähnliche Hauptwörter
(Substantive, Nomen) in die dafür vorgesehenen 4 Formularfelder
hineinschreiben sollen (4 Wörter, die Ihnen als erste zu dem jeweiligen
Wort einfallen). Wenn Ihnen keine 4 Worte einfallen, können Sie auch
weniger angeben, aber versuchen Sie bitte, möglichst viele Wörter zu
finden. Wenn Sie teilnehmen wollen, sollten Sie deutsche/r
Muttersprachler/in sein. Vielen Dank für Ihre Teilnahme!
Die Studie befindet sich auf

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) 
Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
