Qs: Questionnaire on Reflexives
Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean
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.cfm.

We would like to introduce you to the research project "Universals and
the Typology of Reflexives" (principal investigators Eric Reuland and
Martin Everaert, Utrecht University):
One of the aims of this project is to create a database on the various
types and uses of reflexives across languages. For this purpose, we
are looking for native speakers of and language experts on other than
standard average European languages.
We would be grateful if you could help our project by filling in our
questionnaire. It is designed to provide insights on the various reflexive
strategies in the languages and the appropriate data to analyze these
strategies. According to our estimate it takes about 3 hours to fill it in.
You can download the questionnaire at:
After completing it, questionnaire takers should send it back to either
D.Schadleruu.nl or A.Volkovauu.nl.
You might find it helpful to look at our instructions for glossing including
a list of standard abbreviations at:
The database will be published online and of course you will be
credited in the acknowledgements for the data contribution.
Also, if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to
