ITABÙ: Preliminary data for an Italian database for taboo words

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


In this work, we present ITABÙ, a database containing ratings for taboo words in Italian on emotional dimensions – valence, arousal, and dominance – and semantic dimensions – imageability, familiarity, and concreteness. Data have been collected from 130 participants by means of online questionnaires. Emotional dimensions are also analyzed in relation to participants’ gender. In addition to providing a detailed emotional and semantic characterization of stimuli, ITABÙ is an essential tool for psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic research with taboo words.
