I am a student of Polotsk State University in Belarus. We need some associations from native English speakers for our research work . If it is possible write us a few associations for each word: 1.Master; 2.Money; 3.God. And in addition write the color with which you associate each of them. Don’t forget to mention your age, gender& country. Please!

Thank you very much!!!icon_wink.gif

I'd be happy to help, but seeing other people's answers is not a good idea as it interferes with our own associative processes...and it's difficult not to catch sight of something someone else said.

I suggest you ask people to write to your email address:-)

hmm May 14, 2007

What kind of research is this? Perhaps once this work is finalized you could inform us of the title and the results? It seems you are testing semantic connotations...?!

You've guessed. I am going to compare belorussian, russian and english associations.They are different and reflect life of these countries, but from linguistic point they are different too. And the way of thinking? it is not the same at all.icon_wink.gif
