Query:   I am a Phd student at the University of Salamanca (Spain) and I am
doing research on the influence that some properties of the words
might have in the ease at which they are produced as members of
certain categories in a second language.

One of the factors we are considering is the similarity between words
and their equivalents in the L2. In order to find cognates and false
friends, a translation-elicitation task has been designed. This test asks
volunteers from the USA to guess the translation of some Spanish
words. Participants must be American English native speakers who
have never studied Spanish.

If you fulfill the requirements and if you can spare the time, please
gain access to this survey through the link you will find below and
complete it. Your help is greatly appreciated.
