Abstract

Thirty Bulgarian words were presented in list as stimulus in an association to test 100 Kent-Rosanoffs stimulus words. The goal is to research the features of Bulgarian norm of word associations for color terms. That is the reason why all color terms from the list of Kent-Rosanoff are presented within our thirty stimulus words. The first word-responce is mainly connected to the Prototype of Color; The responses are considered as meanings of the colors; semantisations or cultured meanings on the prototypes and their most important qualities - love, hate, calm etc.; The responses at the word-association test can be considered as linguistic and non-linguisticaly subconscious and conscious knowledge on the kernel meanings of the colors.
