Divergence and shared conceptual organization
A Points-of-View analysis of colour listing data from fourteen European languages
To study associations among colour terms, we asked speakers of fourteen European languages to list terms in the order that they came to mind and converted each list into an array of “adjacencies”. Analysis of these pointed to possible differences among languages in the cognitive organization of colour concepts. Based on adjacency arrays, we defined an index of similarity between pairs of lists, within and between languages. Factor analysis identified a shared cognitive framework structuring the colour domain across languages. There is also enough heterogeneity that one can consider two alternative structures or “Points-of-View”, with individuals weighting these extremes in different proportions to yield their personal lists. Moreover, languages differ in the mean weights of their speakers.
