Dutch Data

Leuven Concept Database

Dutch norms for 129 animal names from 5 different categories and 166 artifact names from 6 categories. For each category there's an extensive set of exemplar judgments (e.g., typicality, age-of-acquisition, familiarity, etc.), pairwise similarities, and exemplar feature judgments. A full description and materials is available at the Leuven Concept workshop page.

English Concrete and Abstract Triad data
