DIFFERENTIAL CODABILITY OF STIMULUS ATTRIBUTES.
KOEN, FRANK
THREE PREDICTIONS DERIVED FROM THE NOTION OF THE DIFFERENTIAL CODABILITY OF STIMULUS ATTRIBUTES WERE TESTED. THE STIMULI WERE 24 MUNSELL COLOR CHIPS, VARYING SYSTEMATICALLY IN BOTH HUE AND VALUE. EACH OF 16 SS (SUBJECTS) IN GROUP I SORTED THE CHIPS INTO HOMOGENEOUS GROUPS, WROTE A VERBAL DESCRIPTION OF EACH COLOR, IDENTIFIED HUES ONLY AND VALUES ONLY, AND IDENTIFIED BOTH HUES AND VALUES OF EACH COLOR. SIXTEEN GROUP II SS USED THE MESSAGES OF THE GROUP I SS TO FIND THE COLORS DESCRIBED THEREIN. THERE WERE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE ERRORS IN COMMUNICATING VALUES THAN HUES, THE PREFERRED BASIS FOR SORTING WAS HUE, AND THE PRESENCE OF A DESCRIMINABLE HUE INTERFERED WITH NAMING THE VALUE OF A COLOR IN THE SINGLE RESPONSE TASKS BUT NOT IN THE DOUBLE RESPONSE TASKS. THE IMPLICATIONS OF THE EXPERIMENTS FOR FUTURE STUDIES OF CODABILITY, RECALL, PROBLEM-SOLVING, AND LINGUISTIC RELATIVITY WERE DISCUSSED. THIS REPORT APPEARS IN "STUDIES IN LANGUAGE AND LANGUAGE BEHAVIOR, PROGRESS REPORT V," SEPTEMBER 1, 1967. (AUTHOR/AMM)
