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 am currently working on my thesis ('Diplomarbeit') at Stuttgart University. In the course of my work, I am conducting an experiment for which I require native speakers of English. The experiment is available online and the task is to type in words depending on the stimuli on the screen. It takes about 35 minutes to complete and there is a prize drawing amongst all participants.
The goal of the experiment is to evaluate syntagmatic word associations extracted from corpus data against human associations. The work focuses on adjacent two-word collocations. Hence, the experiment differs from a pure Free Association task in that it is more restrictive regarding possible answers.
The experiment can be reached via
