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.
Date: 13-Jun-2007 From: Anne Schröder <anne.schroederanglistik.uni-halle.de> Subject: Experiment on Verbal Prefixation in English
Dear list members,
we are running an experiment in which we ask people to judge the acceptability of derivational verb forms in English. The idea is to investigate if and to what extent prefix verbs (and which of these) in English are acceptable in different contexts and how their productivity can be measured.
We would like to ask any native speaker of English (and proficient non-native speakers) who have a few minutes to spare to help us complete the experiment. To participate, simply click on the following url: http://www.webpoll.org/guest/quest_a1.htm
The experiment should not take more than 10 minutes of your time.
We would be very grateful for any feedback, comments and suggestions. Many thanks for your time,
