Qs: Experiment on Verbal prefixation in English

Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.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.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: Experiment on Verbal prefixation in English

Dear list members,

last week we asked you to participate in an experiment we are currently
running and to judge the acceptability of derivational verb forms in
English. The idea is to investigate if and to which extent prefix verbs are
acceptable in different contexts in English, and how their productivity can
be measured.

We are very grateful to the approximately 100 people who have participated
so far. Thank you very much indeed. We will post a summary as soon as we
have all the necessary data.

However, the experiment is not over yet and we would still ask any native
speakers of English (and proficient non-native speakers) who have not yet
participated but would like to do so and who have a few minutes to spare to
help us complete this experiment.

The url and the questionnaire have been slightly changed. So please click
on the following url:


It 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,

Anne Schröder
