The second one is to high chroma and low chroma. The third one is to light clear colors and dark clear colors of warm color. The fourth one is to yellow of"low lightness or high chroma"and"middle lightness and from middle chroma to yellow of low chroma". The fifth one is to"low lightness and low chroma"and"from middle lightness to warm color of high chroma".<BR>The test was based on matching one handred colors with fifty-five sense adjectives.<BR>The results of the test tells us that synesthesia image of colors was defined by mainly tone, depending on chroma and lightness.<BR>As for intermodality in colors and sense image, the correlation of the emotional meaning dimension and the meaning dimension of sense was confirmed.
