Qs: Native English Speakers Needed: Apologies

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.

Dear Madam/ Sir,

I made a survey concerning apology strategies for the American native
English speakers so as to find out the strategies that they use in apologies
and to compare them with the strategies that Iraqi EFL University students
use when they express their apologies.

Therefore I am looking for native speakers of English in America to
participate in this short questionnaire.

Note: the age of the testees should be over sixteen.

Here is the link for my survey:
