TABLE OF SYNESTHESIA TYPES (by combinations of senses)


The links will take you to the page on each type, with a description and examples.

The table does not list all the existing types of synesthesia (and it isn't a complete list of all the pages on this website), it is just a route for finding information on this site.

Why is it impossible to list all the types of synesthesia that exist?
