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.
I will soon be running a language collection exercise in France where around 500 participants are asked to phone in and be recorded saying spontaneous and predetermined utterances. I am looking for recommendations for participant recruitment e.g. market research agencies, university departments with willing students etc.
