Phonetic Symbolism: Its Stability and Effects on Verbal Learning.
Kunihira, Shirou
Phonetic symbolism implies that there are intrinsic relationships between sounds employed in words and the meanings of the words. Research in phonetic symbolism and how it operates has implications for foreign language learning. Such research seeks to determine whether one's capacity for correctly guessing the meanings of words in another language (made possible by phonetic symbolism) is an endurable characteristic or something temporary, and whether one's capacity to guess the meanings of words in another language influences one's facility in learning those words. Experiments reported here seek answers to these questions and apply the answers to the subject of vocabulary selection in elementary foreign language textbooks. (VM)
