Date: 20-Oct-2005 From: Lars Yencken <lljycsse.unimelb.edu.au> Subject: Web Experiment for Kanji Similarity
We are seeking participants for an online graphical similarity experiment for Japanese. We need a wide range of participants, including non-speakers of Japanese, second-language learners, and native speakers. The experiment takes about 20 minutes to complete, and can be found at:
The aim of this experiment is to determine how likely learners of Japanese are to mistake one kanji for another at a glance. Since actual error data is difficult to come by, this experiment instead collects graphical similarity judgements from learners/speakers of different backgrounds and proficiencies.
More details can be found on the experiment's web page. Please take a few minutes to participate.
