Some time ago I submitted a posting to the LL( Linguist 14.1877),
asking for tips how to find (linguistically naive) subjects for
linguistic experiments. I'd like to thank again everybody who replied
(and offered their relatives as subjects).
Here are a few tips, based on the replies and my own experience:
1. Finding subjects is VERY difficult.
2. It's close to impossible unless there is a chance of a reward
(money, a gift certificate).
3. There is a portal for linguistic experiments at
www.language-experiments.org where one can submit a link to the
4. Word of mouth is still the best method.
5. Trying to do an experiment during the summer is pretty hopeless
because people are on vacation.
