We are looking for volunteers to take part in a study of psycholinguistics: Tracking English Sentence Processing

As a participant in this online research project, you would be asked to answer a few questions about your linguistic background and complete an online reading experiment through the platform of Pavlovia.org. During the experiment, you will be asked to crack an online maze task of reading English sentences.

Your participation would involve only 1 session, which is approximately 20 to 40 minutes.

If you are at the age of 18 to 55, and you are:

1. A native English Speaker born in Canada/US, or
2. A Chinese Mandarin/English Bilingual Speaker who has moved to Canada/US before the age of 6, or
3. A Chinese Mandarin/English Bilingual Speaker who has moved to Canada/US after the age of 18, or
4. A Chinese Mandarin/English Bilingual Speaker who has been living in China all the time,
you are welcome to participate in this experiment by clicking the following link: https://run.pavlovia.org/yux580/mazeusask/html

For any questions, please contact:
Yubin Xing, Department of Linguistics, University of Saskatchewan, at email: yux580usask.ca

Note:
You don’t need to fill a participant number unless you want to withdraw from the experiment after you finish it. Then the format of a participant number is “your first language_participation time_your age”. For example English_202008251230_25 (i.e. you participate in the experiment at 12:30 of Aug. 25, 2020.)

This study has been approved by the University of Saskatchewan Behavioural Research Ethics Board.
