Linguistic LingField(s):  Semantics

Query:   Hello everyone,

I am a graduate student at the University of Illinois, and I am currently
investigating the dialectal variations of coordination in English,
specifically regarding the syntax and semantics of a specific marginal

If you wish to know the specific construction in question, please ask me
because I am happy to discuss it with you, but I would prefer to not
include it in this message so as to not bias the results of the survey (in
case anyone reading this decides to participate). For anyone with an
interest in coordination and variation within syntax, I would love to hear
your thoughts on the topic as well.

So far I have a significant majority of participants who are native
speakers of American English, and I am actively seeking participants
who speak British English and other varieties. L2 speakers are also
welcome to participate, especially speakers of Scandinavian languages
(Swedish, Norwegian and Danish specifically) for reasons of typological

British English is important because previous research has shown a
significant difference in frequency when compared to American English,
and my recent corpus investigations have hinted at potential structural
differences as well.

The survey takes about 30-45 minutes (self-paced, available any time),
and participants can leave the survey and return later (using a unique
code generated on the website).

Please contact me with any questions or if you wish to know more
about the details of the investigation.

The website for participating in the survey is located at the following

Thank you!
