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.
Have you ever been called by the wrong name? Do you wonder why? Well, we in the Georgia Tech Cognition and Communication Lab are researching this question. Please help us figure out what it is about people and names that causes these slips. By filling out a short online survey, you can provide us with the data needed to start explaining this phenomenon.
