Abstract

Results show different patterns of the grammatical gender effects depending on the conceptual domain of nouns. Further analyses concern the effects of the mode of object presentation (word or picture) as well as possible semantic underpinnings of neutral category in Polish. Results are compared with those of earlier studies (Boroditsky, et al., 2003, Vigliocco et al, 2003) and on their basis possible mechanisms of grammatical gender effects on the conceptualization of nouns are discussed.
