Native Speakers' Intuitions about Newsreader Talk
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I am doing some research on how native speakers of English react to
newsreaders' speaking and reading styles. In particular I would be
interested in seeing whether the speaker's emotions are visible or not to
the listener. For this purpose I have put on the web an online test, which
includes short videoclips of high emotional impact. It is made up of 17
short clips with questions. ADSL OR HIGHER is needed to view the clips with
decent quality. It should not take more than 30 minutes to complete. I am
extremely grateful to anyone who will take the time to answer it (hoping it
will be a not-too-cumbersome holiday distraction).
There are two versions of exactly the same test, one for Windows and the
other for Mac. You can choose either according to your computer type.
I will obviously post the final results here, in early autumn.
Thank you for your time and help!
