Remember when we had a post concerning a language study being conducted by McGill University in Canada? If I recall correctly several participated.
I enquired recently and here is the Email I rec'd :
A few days ago, you sent us an e-mail inquiring whether the results of the vocabulary survey you participated in were available. I'm sorry for the delay in responding to your inquiry. As it happens, we're just putting some
preliminary results on the web right now, and I've been waiting to see whether the web page really works before we give anyone the address.

At this stage, it's still "under development", and the URL may change in the future, however, I'm happy to tell you that you should be able to view some preliminary results on our new web page, at:


Click on "research projects", and then on the vocabulary study.
Let me know what you think.
Thanks again for your participation, and for your interest!
Best wishes,
-- Charles

Thanks, wow. I'm sure a lot of folks will be interested. Now, I have a question of my own--this man's address reads "Drive Penfield": is this the way it's always done up there, no matter which language the address is in?

Yes, he mentioned the possibility in the note, I sent the good Doctor an Email asking to be notified when all is up and running in good shape.
Apologies for jumping the gun.
