Qs: Survey on Online Dictionaries

Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

Dear colleagues,

As part of an ongoing research project at the Institute for German
Language in Mannheim, Germany, financed by the Gottfried Wilhelm
Leibniz Scientific Community, we are collecting empirical data on the
use of online dictionaries, as only a few studies exist in this area.
To this end, we are conducting online surveys in German and English.
Our current study examines how users evaluate several features or
elements of online dictionaries and how they rate different visual
representations of information.

We would be very grateful if you would support our research by
participating in this survey. The survey should take approximately 25 to
30 minutes to complete. Until September 16, it can be launched using
any web browser by clicking on the link below:


In return for your participation, you may enter our drawing for 10
Amazon vouchers, worth 10 Euro each. In addition, we will donate 1
Euro for each completed questionnaire to the programme "Girls'
Education", which is part of the aid project "Room to Read"

Furthermore, we would be grateful if you could forward this email or the
link to people who might be interested in participating, e. g. colleagues
or your students.

Thank you very much for supporting our research.

Kind regards,
Carolin Müller-Spitzer
Antje Töpel
