The Transparency task was designed to test whether speakers would extend the word order pattern of their languages to the pictorial modality. The participants were shown on a computer screen vignettes that depicted events and then asked to reconstruct these events by using sets of transparent pictures. A black line drawing of the entities in each event (e.g., woman, knob) and a black cartoon drawing of the action in the event (e.g., an arrowed line representing the twisting motion) were placed on separate transparencies. Participants were given pictures which depicted either the beginning or the end scene of each event. They were asked to reconstruct the event by stacking the transparencies one by one onto a peg to form a single representation. Participants were given no indication that the order in which they stacked the transparencies was the focus of the study. For this Transparency task session: Transparency Task: End
