Qs: 'Ritualization', Survey/Grammatical Intuitions

Editor for this issue: Karen Milligan <karenlinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Dear Linguists,
	
I once read 'ritualization' as an alternative term for
grammaticalization, but I forget where. I should appreciate it very
much if you can tell me where the term appears and is discussed.

Message 2: language survey on adults' grammatical intuitions

Subject: language survey on adults' grammatical intuitions

Hello,

I am a doctoral student at the University of London, Royal Holloway,
studying under the supervision of Dr. Matthew Saxton. We are
investigating children's grammatical intuitions. Recently, we
developed a web survey for adult participants.

We would greatly appreciate your help in drawing 
participants/students/colleagues/friends to our web site:

http://www-rohan.sdsu.edu/~khasky

The study only takes about 15 minutes to complete and is anonymous: we
do not request your name or address. Since this is a study on
grammatical intuitions, linguists and child language researchers
should not take part themselves. If you have any questions, please
send an email to M.Saxtonwin.ac.uk or deskasshotmail.com

Sincerely,

Amy Khasky
