Variation of saturation across hue affects unique and typical hue choices

Variation of saturation across hue affects unique and typical hue choices
Variation of saturation across hue affects unique and typical hue choices
Most studies on colour categorisation and many studies on unique hues have used samples ofmaximally saturated Munsell chips that vary in saturation across hue. Here we show that observ-ers’ choices of category prototypes and unique hues depend on the variation of Munsell chromaacross hue. Both unique hue and prototype choices were shifted towards the more saturated huesin the respective stimulus set. This effect of saturation may explain cross-cultural regularitiesin colour categorisation. More generally, these findings highlight the importance of controllingsaturation when measuring colour categories and unique hues.

Abstract

Most studies on colour categorisation and many studies on unique hues have used samples ofmaximally saturated Munsell chips that vary in saturation across hue. Here we show that observ-ers’ choices of category prototypes and unique hues depend on the variation of Munsell chromaacross hue. Both unique hue and prototype choices were shifted towards the more saturated huesin the respective stimulus set. This effect of saturation may explain cross-cultural regularitiesin colour categorisation. More generally, these findings highlight the importance of controllingsaturation when measuring colour categories and unique hues.
