Qs: Imagineability

Editor for this issue: Dan Parker <danlinguistlist.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.

Hello, I am a student in Linguistics and Psycholinguistics.

I'm going through a project and I would like to know what essay/article
should be regarded as basic reference for the concept of
''imagineability'', often referred to in psycholinguistic experiments. I
have troubles in understanding this concept from what I read. I would
especially like to grasp the differences between the concepts of
''imagineability'' and ''concreteness''. This difference is not always
clearly stated in the literature. I would appreciate not only
bibliographical references but also, if possible, statements by the
repondents concerning their own view as for the difference ''imageability /

I shall post a summary of the responses, quoting the respondents only upon
their explicit agreement.

Linguistic Field(s): Psycholinguistics
