MiniJudge 2.0, the latest version of a software tool for designing,
running, and analyzing small-scale syntactic acceptability judgment
experiments, is available for download:

MiniJudge 2.0: www.ccunix.ccu.edu.tw/~lngproc/MiniJudgeJava2.htm
Earlier versions: www.ccunix.ccu.edu.tw/~lngproc/MiniJudge.htm

Like all previous versions, MiniJudge 2.0 remains free and open-
source, but it has been totally redesigned to increase flexibility and
ease of use:

- has a new visually intuitive interface for generalizing a basic sentence
set to new sets
- distributes surveys not only on paper and in a lab setting, but also via
a dedicated website
- communicates directly with R for statistical analysis

While we think MiniJudge 2.0 is already a very useful tool, for both
students and experienced syntacticians who want to double-check
fuzzy judgments, we are always looking for ways to improve it. (One
known limitation is that it currently requires Windows or Linux - sorry!)
So please try it out and give us your comments and suggestions - or,
since it's open source, take what you like and build an even better tool!
