Eliciting color terms paper now open access

Friday, January 28, 2011 we wrote about our EI papers, but then Saturday, February 19, 2011 we had to backpedal on the accessibility of the papers. Today we are happy to announce that with the generous support of our lab director who is sponsoring the page charges, we are able to make the fuchsia paper open access.

Color names are often given ad hoc

Colors are often named ad hoc, like in the image above. In the fuchsia paper, we derive the correct method to elicit color terms. In a second part, we report on the calibrated lunch experiment, where we show that color terms elicited from emissive samples like those from crowd-sourcing correlate very well with those elicited from reflection samples like those used in the World Color Survey.

Here is the link to the paper: (the button to download the PDF is on the right). The slides are still in the post of Tuesday, January 25, 2011.

Happy Easter and happy reading!
