E-mail this message to a friend
I'm looking for native speakers of English or Polish who
could help me and fill in an online questionnaire about the use of terms of
address in English and Polish.
If you want to contribute and have about 5-10 minutes to spare - please
visit http://ifa.amu.edu.pl/~krynicki/questaddre.htm for further instructions.
Your answers will help me to find out what factors influence our choice of
polite, casual, mixed or neutral address terms. The factors I consider
include the age of speakers, the frequency of their interaction, the usual
place of their interaction etc.
Additionally, if you are aware of a study that would answer this question
by empirical and statistical methods, please let me know.
I am an associate professor at the School of English, Adam Mickiewicz
University, Poznan, Poland.
Thank you very much,
Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
