Hi,

	BYU's procedures are pretty excessive relative to ours. Our IRB
offers a waiver condition: projects that fall into one of several
categories can be waived from further review by the chief administrator of
the IRB. Thus, the IRB never sees the proposals. All my psycholinguistic
proposals to date have qualified for the waiver, and I suspect virtually
all linguistic proposals would qualify. The form requesting the waiver is
relatively simple (2-3 pages). The most complex thing required is a
description of the experimental procedure.

	Good luck!
