Qs: Native English Speakers 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.

We are looking for native speakers of English (18 years and older) for
a web-based study of complex sentence comprehension. For this study
we are using an innovative method that lets people participate from
their own computer.

They will record themselves while reading a sentence and will then
judge its acceptability. Participation takes about 25-30 minutes.

The first 60 participants will receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card as a thank
you for helping us with our research.

Please note that we are seeking participants who are not linguists or
advanced linguistics students, so we are hoping you will share the
following announcement with the students in your introductory classes.

The survey is located here: www.speakingjudging.com/study

If you have any questions, please contact Esther Schott
(ESchottgc.cuny.edu) who is working with me on this project.

Thank you,
