Qs: Science Corpora; Speech Perception - Online Experiment

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.

Hi,

I'm a post-grad student doing a study on collocations in science texts. I
would appreciate it if anybody could tell me if there's any science corpora
that i can use as a reference?

Thanks.

Message 2: Speech Perception - Online Experiment

Subject: Speech Perception - Online Experiment



I am currently running an online experiment on speech perception which is
available at http://www.inter-word.net/identity/. I am looking for
participants irrespective of their native language. Participants can use an
English or German interface.

The task involves listening to word fragment pairs and deciding whether the
two fragments are identical or not. Altogether, the completion of the
experiment will take 10 minutes (approximately).

Results and detailed information about the purpose of the experiment will
be made available after the experiment has completed.

Thank you in advance for your participation!

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can 
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more 
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift 
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human 
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns 
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the 
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment 
to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
