- The Linguistic Annotated Bibliography (LAB) is a searchable web portal for reliable database norms, related programs, and variable calculations. These publications were coded by language, number of stimuli, stimuli type (i.e., words, pictures, symbols), keywords (i.e., frequency, semantics, valence), etc. For more information, see: Buchanan, E. M., Valentine, K. D., & Maxwell, N. (2018). The LAB: Linguistic Annotated Bibliography. (preprint).: http://www.wordnorms.com/
- The MRC Psycholinguistic Database is a machine usable dictionary containing 150837 words with up to 26 linguistic and psycholinguistic attributes for each. http://websites.psychology.uwa.edu.au/school/MRCDatabase/uwa_mrc.htm http://websites.psychology.uwa.edu.au/school/MRCDatabase/MDWilsonMRC.pdf
- WordNet Lexical Databases for a broad range of languages:
- The ARC database provides non-word stimuli: http://www.cogsci.mq.edu.au/~nwdb/nwdb.html
- If you want to check whether a potential non-word does not already have a meaning in current usage, you might want to check the Urban Dictionary: http://www.urbandictionary.com
- You might also want to check that the potential non-word is not a brand name: http://www.kunst-worte.de/markennamen/
- The International Picture Database is the result of a large international study to provide norms for timed-picture-naming in different languages and cultures (American English, German, Mexican Spanish, Italian, Bulgarian, Hungarian, and Mandarin Chinese (Taiwan variety); http://crl.ucsd.edu/experiments/ipnp/ ). Pictures can be searched by lexical parameters, percent name agreement, response times, and visual complexity.
- The International Affective Picture System offers photographs for emotion research (http://csea.phhp.ufl.edu/media/iapsmessage.html ).
- The TarrLab Stimulus Repository contains picture stimuli for experiments
- The CHILDES database for child language data comes with the ChildFreq tool that lets you extract word frequencies: http://childfreq.sumsar.net/ ; see also our own CHILDES info page
