Homework Help: Scientific experiment lakoffs theory

  1. Mar 7, 2008 #1
    [SOLVED] scientific experiment lakoffs theory

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    i am attempting to deduce the relationship between the human brain and colours according to gender.
    i aim to compile evidence of a large test case (which would likely rival lakoff's) to produce a detailed report to combat or confirm the theory.

    2. Relevant equations

    the experiment:

    looking at the two colours below (answer separately), what names for them come to mind?

    please answer with as many suggestions as you can think of (without looking at prior answers). :P

    & include your gender

    3. The attempt at a solution

    this experiment will run till next thursday when i compile the results together and post my findings.

    is lakoff's theory correct?


    p.s. even if it seems silly as long as it relates to the colour eg a reaction or a product it is permissable.
