    Attentional Factors in Conceptual Congruency.Julio Santiago, Marc Ouellet, Antonio Román & Javier Valenzuela - 2012 - Cognitive Science 36 (6):1051-1077.
    Conceptual congruency effects are biases induced by an irrelevant conceptual dimension of a task (e.g., location in vertical space) on the processing of another, relevant dimension (e.g., judging words’ emotional evaluation). Such effects are a central empirical pillar for recent views about how the mind/brain represents concepts. In the present paper, we show how attentional cueing (both exogenous and endogenous) to each conceptual dimension succeeds in modifying both the manifestation and the symmetry of the effect. The theoretical implications of this (...)

    Emotion and Colour Across Languages: Implicit Associations in Spanish Colour Terms.Cristina Soriano & Javier Valenzuela - 2009 - Social Science Information 48 (3):421-445.
    This study explores the reasons why colour words and emotion words are frequently associated in the different languages of the world. One of them is connotative overlap between the colour term and the emotion term. A new experimental methodology, the Implicit Association Test, is used to investigate the implicit connotative structure of the Peninsular Spanish colour terms rojo, azul, verde and amarillo in terms of Osgood’s universal semantic dimensions: Evaluation, Activity and Potency. The results show a connotative profile compatible with (...)

    Duration as Length Vs Amount in English and Spanish: A Corpus Study.Daniel Alcaraz Carrion & Javier Valenzuela - 2021 - Metaphor and Symbol 36 (2):74-84.
    Previous psycholinguistic studies have suggested that English and Spanish express temporal duration through different metaphors. English tends to use the time-as-length metaphor (e.g. I have been w...

    Iconicity and Systematicity in Phonaesthemes: A Cross-Linguistic Study.Javier Valenzuela, Amandine Fregier & Jose A. Mompean - 2020 - Cognitive Linguistics 31 (3):515-548.
    This study aims to find out whether speakers of different language backgrounds are sensitive to semantic associations attached respectively to two purported phonaesthemes. Participants completed the task in oral and written conditions. They had to match phonaestheme-related definitions with either of two non-words. The results obtained indicate that participants significantly chose non-words beginning with /tr-/ when the definition activated a meaning related to forcible contact, and non-words starting with /fl-/ when the definitions made reference to fluids in the four languages.
