Editor for this issue: Zac Smith <zaclinguistlist.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.

I am a postgraduate student at Salford University. I would really
appreciate your help if possible. If you know how to lip read, can you
become a participant to my online test?

The link is

The test takes almost 20 minute to complete. This project focuses on
lip reading and deafness. The question of the online test is: Can you lip
read from a 3D animated character as well as from a real person?

I would be very grateful if you could participate or forward this test to
anyone who knows how to lip read. It is very difficult to recruit
participants and that is why I would be very glad if you could help me.
This research is done in order to see if we can built a 3D software
programme for deaf children in UK.
