Abstract
Three experiments investigated unique hues (Hering, 1878) in native Korean
and English speakers. Many recent studies have shown that color categories
differ across languages and cultures, challenging the proposal that a particular
set of color categories is universal and potentially innate. Unique hue judgments,
and selection of the best examples of those categories have also been found to
vary within an English-speaking population. Here we investigated unique hue
judgments and possible discrepancies between unique hue and best example
judgments in two languages. Experiment 1 found that the loci of unique hues
were similar for English and Korean speakers. Experiment 2 replicated and
extended this result, using both single and double hue scaling. Experiment 3
showed that, in both cultures, unique hue choices depended on the range, and
organization of the array from which participants chose. The results of this study
suggest that unique hue judgments vary according to the experimental task, in
both languages.
