Synesthetic Perception and Poetic Metaphor.
Marks, Lawrence E.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, v8 n1 p15-23 Feb 1982
To explore the role of cross-modal perception in comprehending synesthetic metaphors, subjects read 15 metaphors relating visual and auditory qualities and set the loudness of a tone and the brightness of a light to the levels suggested by each metaphor. A pervasive cross-modal equivalence between loudness and brightness in the subjects' responses underlies the results. (Author/LC)
