Qs: Native English Speakers Needed for Survey

Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.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.cfm.

Dear Colleagues,

I am looking for native speakers of English who are willing to complete
an online survey on the interpretation of comparative expressions (part
of a project on comparatives, joint with Ora Matushansky). Please see
the recruitment message below. Both linguists and non-linguists are
encouraged to participate - please forward this message to other
native English speakers.

Thank you!
Tania Ionin

**Recruitment Message**
Native speakers of English are being invited to participate in a study of
how certain grammatical structures are interpreted in English. The
study involves answering a short survey on the web, about the
acceptability of certain structures in English. The study will take
between 15 and 30 minutes to complete; there is no compensation for
participation.

If you are a native speaker of English and would like to participate,
please send an email to Tania Ionin, tioninillinois.edu. If you prefer to
remain anonymous, please go directly to the url for the survey:
