Dear LINGUIST Listers,

My name is Elisa Pérez García, a Spanish PhD student at the English Department, University of Salamanca, Spain.
I am writing to ask you for help to distribute the online survey ‘Emotions, language, and culture’, aimed at getting a better view on the way English L1 speakers interpret and express emotions in L1 English. This is part of my ongoing research project, where I will compare these data with those from Spanish L1 participants and Spanish-English bilinguals.
I think that Linguist List could be an interesting place to post my survey and collect English native speakers: males or females in their 20s-30s-40s living in an English-speaking country.
The questionnaire has two parts: (1) Background information and (2) a writing task: The participants will be asked to watch a short video and describe in English the emotions felt by the characters.
This is an anonymous and voluntary survey. It should not take longer than 10-15 minutes.
The link is the following:

I will be happy to share my future results with anyone interested.
The deadline for completing this survey would be 1st May, 2019.
Thank you for your help!
