This is a multi-lingual colour naming experiment. It is part of research on colour naming and colour categorisation within different cultures, and aims to improve the inter-cultural colour dialogue. By taking part you are helping us to develop an online colour naming model which will be based on the colour language provided from your responses.

As part of this simple experiment you will be asked to name a series of colour samples. It should not take longer than 10 minutes, but if you would like to quit you are free to withdraw at any time.

The experiment requires the latest Flash player and Java Script enabled. By clicking the Start button you agree to take part in this study.
