Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to participate in an online study on problemsolving, conducted as part of a collaborative research project involvingthe intersection of cognitive science and linguistics at the Universitiesof Bremen and Bamberg (Germany). Participants are taken throughexample problems and are then asked to solve another problem bythemselves. The problems are easy to understand and entertaining tosolve.

The completion of the task will take approximately 20 minutes.Participants should be (i.e., consider themselves) native speakers ofEnglish. Since we do not wish to influence participants by describingwhat we wish to study before anyone performs the task, any questions(for example about the linguistic component of the task) should be sentdirectly to

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science                             Discourse Analysis
