Qs: Volunteers for Study in Dialogue Segmentation

Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.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.

Volunteers needed; language experiment

the Web. I'm collecting data in a study about dialogue segmentation -
seeking to work out how speakers recognize structure in an extended

You can take part in this experiment very simply by using your computer.

Here's the link:

The experiment takes about 10-15 minutes; 5 or so minutes to read the
helpful guide, and 5 to complete the exercise in dialogue segmentation.

All participation is voluntary and anonymous. No information about you will
be requested or collected.

This research has been approved by the UWA Human Research Ethics Committee.

Thank you,
