Abstract

Chen et al (In prepare) found that deaf people have established similar pattern of color-shape associations with hearing people, such as circle-red, triangle-yellow, and squareblue links. This result indicated that phonological information might have little effect on color-shape associations. However, the strength and consistency of color-shape associations in deaf people is currently unknown. In the present study, we examined the consistency of color-shape associations over a span of time in deaf people. Results showed that deaf people's color-shape associations (e.g., circle-red) were consistent and stable over time. Those results might provide further support for semantic sensory correspondence between colors and shapes.
