Query:   Dear all,

I study Psycholinguistics and I am preparing materials for my MA research project. In order to make sure that the stimuli I have collected so far are fine, I need to test them first on the native speakers of English.

As I live in Poland, I kindly ask you to help me with this challenging task and take the following surveys. I will be extremely grateful.
