  1. Paul Kay (2010). Some Facts of Seneca Kinship Semantics. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 33 (5):388-389.
    Jones's analysis of Seneca kinship semantics gets some of the facts about close relatives wrong, and his mechanism for extending the analysis to distant relatives does not work.

  5. Michael A. Webster & Paul Kay (2005). Variations in Color Naming Within and Across Populations. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (4):512-513.
    The simulations of Steels & Belpaeme (S&B) suggest that communication could lead to color categories that are closely shared within a language and potentially diverge across languages. We argue that this is opposite of the patterns that are actually observed in empirical studies of color naming. Focal color choices more often exhibit strong concordance across languages while also showing pronounced variability within any language.

  6. Paul Kay (2000). Comprehension Deficits of Broca's Aphasics Provide No Evidence for Traces. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):37-38.
    The data provided by Grodzinsky demonstrating a syntactic comprehension deficit in Broca's patients provide no evidence for the theoretical concepts of movement, trace or “trace deletion.” The comprehension deficit data can be more economically accounted for with traditional grammatical concepts that are less theory-internal and more empirically based.

  7. Paul Kay (1999). Asymmetries in the Distribution of Composite and Derived Basic Color Categories. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (6):957-958.
    PURPLE (RED-and-BLUE) is the most frequently occurring derived (binary) basic color term (BCT), but there is never a named composite BCT meaning RED-or-BLUE. GREEN-or-BLUE is the most frequently named composite color category, but there is never a BCT for the corresponding derived (binary) category CYAN (BLUE-and-GREEN). Why?

  8. Paul Kay & Brent Berlin (1997). Science [Ne] Imperialism: There Are Nontrivial Constraints on Color Naming. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (2):196-201.
    Saunders & van Brakel's claim that Berlin and Kay (1969) assumed a language/vision correlation in the area of color categorization and disguised this assumption as a finding is shown to be false. The methodology of the World Color Survey, now nearing completion, is discussed and the possibility of an additional language/vision correlation in color categorization is suggested.
