Qs: English Verbs of Manner of Speaking Questionnaire
Editor for this issue: Zac Smith
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 looking for volunteers to participate in an online questionnaire about
how English speakers use verbs of manner of speaking (e.g. 'screech' and
'holler'). Participants can be both native and non-native English speakers.
The results of this questionnaire will be used as part of a sociolinguist
The questionnaire consists of twelve fill-in-the-blank questions in which
participants have to decide which of two words best completes a sentence.
After that exercise, participants will be asked to rank how often these
words are used with males versus females. The questionnaire will take
between five and ten minutes to complete, and will be available to
participants until December 14, 2012.
If you would like to participate, please select one of the links below
based on your birth month.
