Linguistic LingField(s):  Pragmatics

Query:   I am studying disinvitations and need your help. A “disinvitation” is the adult equivalent of the six-year-old's “you can’t come to my birthday party.”

You (or someone you know) may have received a disinvitation if you or your acquaintance
(a) have/has been explicitly not invited to something or
(b) an invitation previously extended to you or someone you know has been rescinded.

If you have had this experience, please consider filling out a very short and simple survey of 8 questions; the amount of time it takes is up to you and how much you want to say. I would really appreciate your help!

To fill out the survey, please visit:

Many thanks!
