Linguistic LingField(s):  Cognitive Science

Query:   We cordially invite you to participate in an online study on problem
solving, conducted as part of a collaborative research project involving
the intersection of cognitive science and linguistics at the Universities
of Bremen and Bamberg (Germany). Participants are taken through
example problems and are then asked to solve another problem by
themselves. The problems are easy to understand and entertaining to

The completion of the task will take approximately 30 minutes.
Participants should be (i.e., consider themselves) native speakers of
English. Since we do not wish to influence participants by describing
what we wish to study before anyone performs the task, any questions
(for example about the linguistic component of the task) should be sent
directly to.

Participation is entirely anonymous; a small number of demographic
questions support the interpretation and assessment of general validity
of the collected data.
