Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to provide an insight on the field of psycholinguistics, and how this field has begun and evolved in Japan and the Japanese language, as well as to provide a short history on the Japanese orthographic system. The intention is that anyone, even someone lacking any and all experiences with the japanese language can and may read this paper. That said, I have used some terms which might be considered to be outside of this defenition, but also tried to provide as thorough an explanation as is possible when concerning space.

The covered material is in no way to consider anything but a scratch on the surface of this huge discipline. I have chosen to include what I feel to be the most important and relevant... (More)
The purpose of this paper is to provide an insight on the field of psycholinguistics, and how this field has begun and evolved in Japan and the Japanese language, as well as to provide a short history on the Japanese orthographic system. The intention is that anyone, even someone lacking any and all experiences with the japanese language can and may read this paper. That said, I have used some terms which might be considered to be outside of this defenition, but also tried to provide as thorough an explanation as is possible when concerning space.

The covered material is in no way to consider anything but a scratch on the surface of this huge discipline. I have chosen to include what I feel to be the most important and relevant aspects, and the bibliography contains further reading which might be of interest to anyone looking to review the experiments bruoght up in this thesis.

This thesis also contains the conduct and result of a stroop-test. A stroop-test is an experiment in which the subjects are to pronounce the color of a word appearing on a screen (or similar), and the word itself is spelling out the name of a color. The test includes the colors black, blue, red and green (kuro, ao, aka and midori in Japanese), all of which might appear written in their phonetical representation in Roman letters, or the Japanese hiragana-syllabary. A discussion is then provided concerning the results as well as further examples of similar experiments, and in which ways these kind of experimants can be expanded upon. (Less)
