Query:   Dear Linguist,

I'd like to ask you for your help. Can you please ask your Native
American English friends or students to take part in my experiments?

My perception experiments were made online with the help of our Lab
engineer. There are 3 smaller experiments. The links are:

(to listen and judge
English vowels)
(to listen and judge
English consonants at the beginning of a word)
(to listen and judge
English consonants at the end of a word)

There are a few points to tell your friends/students first:
-- Only the native speaker of American English can do the experiments,
which means they have to choose this option at the section of
-- Only the Internet Explorer (IE) can be used. The experiments won't
run on other browsers like Firefox or Google Chrome, because of our
-- Computers with a bigger screen are preferred since bigger screen
can display the complete table.
-- At the very beginning, there might be an error message saying
something about .xml file, click OK to continue. The experiment runs
after this.

It is best that the same person does all the three experiments, of
course one after another, but not at the same go. It will be tiring if one
person tries two of the experiments at one go.

I very much appreciate your help. This means a lot to my dissertation,
and of course to my research.

Best Wishes,
