The best term I ever heard for linguists' loss of the ability to make
grammaticality/acceptability judgments was "scanting", coined by Haj Ross
sometime around 1970. According to Haj, just trying to produce any judgments
with sentences containing the word "scant" was sufficient to induce such a loss
in short order. Try it!

Jane Tang asks for references about 'losing' grammatical intuitions.
Though not about linguists, a study published in the Journal of
Psycholinguistic Research (17.1:1-17), by Hiroshi Nagata (The
Relativity of Linguistic Intuition: The Effect of Repetition on
Grammaticality Judgements), concludes that "linguistic intuitions
as revealed in grammaticality judgements are not absolute, but relative
in that they are easily influenced by repetition and other variables,
such as embedded context."

Message 3: Language and Power Bibliography--Announcement

Date: Wed, 29 Apr 92 11:08:24 MDLanguage and Power Bibliography--Announcement
From: Ron Southerland <southerlacs.ucalgary.ca>
Subject: Language and Power Bibliography--Announcement


A bibliography of work on language and power has been placed on the LINGUIST
server. This bibliography combines contributions from a number of
respondents to a query I placed in Linguist a while back. Most of those
respondents are listed in my summary (Linguist 3-366). Some items may be
inappropriate--I was unable to verify all of the suggestions.
This bibliography includes a wide range of items which relate in
one degree or another to the topic--from the highly theoretical
to the highly particularistic to the applied. Apologies for any incorrect
or incomplete references.

[Moderators' note: The bibliography mentioned in this posting is available
on the server. To get the file, send a message to:
 listservtamvm1.tamu.edu (if you are on the Internet)
 OR
 listservtamvm1 (if you are on the Bitnet)
The message should consist of the single line:
 get power bib linguist
You will then receive the complete file.]
