Word Association Study

On average, an adult knows about 40,000 words, but what do these words mean to people like you and me? You can help scientists understand how meaning is organized in our mental dictionary by playing the game of word associations.

This game takes just 5 minutes of your time. It's easy: Just give the first three words that come to mind for a list of 18 cue words. Everyone can participate, but if you're not a native English speaker, please choose one of the language options below.
