#137688 01/22/05 10:46 PM OP Hi,
we (a couple of researchers from the linguistics department at Stanford University) are looking for a participants in an online study on English questions. Only NATIVE SPEAKERs of ENGLISH can participate (if you're not a native speaker, pls refrain from participating).
We are interested in your native speaker intuitions (not prescriptive rules of grammar) regarding certain types of questions and statements. This is an exploratory study, so unfortunately we cannot afford to offer any funding.
If you nevertheless would like to help us (and the progress of science ;-), please send us an email at:
We will then point you to our online experiment,
Thx a lot for your interest!
Linguistics Department, Stanford University
#137689 01/22/05 11:05 PM boy, these guys haven't been paying any attention and have no fappin' idea what these forums are all about!
#137690 01/22/05 11:09 PM boy ;-), actually a friend of mine who is quite active in this list recommended posting on this list to me, since people here would be interested in language in general.
If that is not the case, I apologize for spaming this list. In any case, if you ARE interested in language, maybe you will find our experiments interesting.
#137691 01/22/05 11:24 PM say Florian, your friend wouldn't be "milum" by any chance?

#137692 01/23/05 12:13 AM Just out of curiosity, why would Stanford have a Yahoo address?
#137693 01/23/05 12:19 AM oh Windy, don't be cynical.
I was wondering about the SUVresearch, myownself.
(humor us, we've had some real beauts post their spam here.)
#137694 01/23/05 12:25 AM I'd say Word has a point.
#137695 01/23/05 12:37 AM Oh, tSunny, I was humoring you.
#137696 01/23/05 12:52 AM Well--his website looks legit to me. Though there didn't appear to be any way to sign up from that; just a note to check back around Jan. 15th.
#137697 01/23/05 01:00 AM What is it folks, are we becoming cowed by con men to the point where we we hide in our caves in fear of latter day Neanderthals?
So now I, the milum, will step out from behind our rock and confront these fast talking apemen with raised club.
Stand back, women, children, and girley men, see now!
The great milum goes forth!
