Linguistic LingField(s):  Sociolinguistics

Query:   I am looking for volunteers to participate in an online questionnaire about
how English speakers use verbs of manner of speaking (e.g. 'screech' and
'holler'). Participants can be both native and non-native English speakers.
The results of this questionnaire will be used as part of a sociolinguist
pilot study.

The questionnaire consists of twelve fill-in-the-blank questions in which
participants have to decide which of two words best completes a sentence.
After that exercise, participants will be asked to rank how often these
words are used with males versus females. The questionnaire will take
between five and ten minutes to complete, and will be available to
participants until December 14, 2012.

If you would like to participate, please select one of the links below
