[Xmca-l] Fwd: [COGDEVSOC] NOUN Database 2.0

Does anyone "here" have an interest in this data base? If so, it would be
very interesting to know who's asking? Who is being asked?

 Dear colleagues:

 I am pleased to announce that the Novel Object & Unusual Name (NOUN)
Database has been updated and the 2nd Edition is now available! This new
edition includes 64 primary images and 10 object categories. Information
about the objects’ novelty and name-ability are also included. Finally,
there is an alphabetical list of novel names (pseudo-words). I hope that
this resource will be helpful for many of you as you plan your next studies.

 You can learn more about the NOUN Database on the WORD Lab website:
http://www.sussex.ac.uk/wordlab/noun and/or my collaborator’s (Michael
Hout) website: http://michaelhout.com/?page_id=441

 A handy PDF of information and the catalogue of images is available in A4
and US Letter

 Best wishes,

Dr. Jessica S. Horst
