The Language of Vision I: Colour
The task is designed to elicit vocabulary for colour using a subset of the Munsell chips from the World Colour Survey. The primary goal is to establish how people talk about colour and what resources the language provides for doing so, specifically (1) whether there is dedicated vocabulary for encoding colour and (2) how much consistency there is within a community for describing colour.
You must have consulted Language of perception (pp. 10-21).
To conduct this task you need – (i) colour booklet, (ii) colour-blindness plates.
