Assessing Concreteness Rating Data from Older Adults

This project is looking to collect psycholinguistic ratings from older adults (i.e., 50 years or older), using online surveys. The quality adults will be rating is word concreteness, a measurement of how perceivably physical/tangible a concept is (e.g., a word like "apple" should rate high in concreteness whereas a word like "sympathy" should have a minimal rating). Previous research has collected these ratings from large, but predominantly young adult samples. Therefore, the present study aims to adress this bias and gather normative ratings from older adults specifically. This study can improve speech therapies provided to largely older adult populations (e.g., patients with language impairments after stroke).
