Linguistic LingField(s):  Psycholinguistics

Query:   We are looking for native speakers of English (18 years and older) for
a web-based study of complex sentence comprehension. For this study
we are using an innovative method that lets people participate from
their own computer.

They will record themselves while reading a sentence and will then
judge its acceptability. Participation takes about 25-30 minutes.

The first 60 participants will receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card as a thank
you for helping us with our research.

Please note that we are seeking participants who are not linguists or
advanced linguistics students, so we are hoping you will share the
following announcement with the students in your introductory classes.

The survey is located here:

If you have any questions, please contact Esther Schott
