    Default Which would you call "kiki" and "bouba?"

    I know many of you probably know about this experiment, but I want to know your personal preference for which is "kiki" and which is "bouba." I don't want the "correct" answer, I want YOUR answer.

    I agree with SoandSO Kiki sounds much more pointy...

    I agree with the others so far. "Bouba" sounds bulbous.

    If you take away the images and just think about the words.. Kiki actually sounds more cute and bubbly and Bouba , sounds more cold and prickly.

    So I am not sure.

    "kiki" for the spiky one and "bouba" for the blobby one.

    Yep.

    Ki is a much sharper sound than Bou or Ba.

    If it was between Vivi or Bibi I'd still say Bibi was the one on the right.
