Wiki Version:
The materials in this Project include the stimuli, test materials, and data from a set of experiments in Shang & Styles (2017). With these materials you can: • replicate/check our existing analysis • do your own exploratory analysis to test a different hypothesis • replicate the main experiment on paper using the same design, or in a different paradigm. • use these stimuli in new experiments with different designs. **The collection includes:** Audio recordings of natural speech by a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese articulating the vowels /i/ and /u/ in the four tones of Mandarin Chinese (T1, T2, T3, T4). The articulations have been judged to be typical, as reported in the main article. Visual stimuli used in the studies - photographs of objects hand made by the second author. **Reports:** The main report arising from this project can be found here: Shang N & Styles SJ (2017). Is a high tone pointy? Degree of pitch-change in lexical tone predicts of sound-to-shape correspondences in Chinese bilinguals. Frontiers, 8(2139), 1. doi:10.3389/fpsyg.2017.02139 Earlier stages of this project were reported here: Shang N & Styles SJ (2014). Cross-model correspondences between visual shape and Mandarin Chinese tone in speakers with different language backgrounds. Poster presented at the International Multisensory Research Forum, Amsterdam. Shang N & Styles SJ (2015). Language backgrounds tune cross-modal perception between linguistic pitch and shape’. Poster presented at the International Multisensory Research Forum, Pisa. Shang N & Styles SJ (2015). Language background changes audio-visual mapping of shapes-to-sounds. Poster presented at the Asia-Pacific Conference on Vision, Singapore.
