Subject: Indian English stress judgments


I'm seeking native speakers of English from India who would
be willing to assist in a short and simple stress judgment
test (< 3 minutes). Results will be organized according to
region of origin and L1, so anyone from across the
sub-continent is welcome to participate.

If interested, please contact:

Thank you,
