The Sound and the Shapey
The following shapes were used in a well-known psychological experiment regarding the mapping between speech sounds and the visual shape of objects. The original experiment was conducted in the late 1920s; it has been repeated since then with slight variations.
I have included a poll below to see what my readers think. There is not a right or wrong answer.
Please participate only if you are not familiar with the experiment. Also, no cheating, please (i.e. no google image searches).
I will reveal more about the experiment next week.
