Qs: Natve English speaking participants needed

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.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

My name is Karen Glaser, and I am a PhD student at Chemnitz University of
Technology, Germany, conducting research on acquisitional pragmatics with
learners of English as a Foreign Language.

I am currently in the pilot test phase of the scenarios I'm planning to use
in my DCT (Discourse Completion Task) Questionnaire, and I'm still looking
for native speakers of English (any variety welcome!) who would be willing
to complete a questionnaire containing 12 scenarios that are accompanied by
multiple choice questions capturing the respondent's spontaneous
impressions of the situations. The questionnaire is actually quite
entertaining (so I've been told) and should take no longer than 10-15
minutes to complete.

The questionnaire is provided in both docx and doc format to ensure that it
runs smoothly on most computers. It can be accessed here (further
instructions are provided in the questionnaire):



If you would like to help me with my research by completing the
questionnaire and/or passing it on to (other) suitable participants, I'd
appreciate it very much. If you have any questions about my project, don't
hesitate to contact me at karen.glaser(at)phil.tu-chemnitz.de.

Thank you for considering my request - I'm very grateful for any support.
