Qs: Address Strategies in English Academic Settings
Editor for this issue: Dan Parker
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

I'm looking for native speakers of English (in particular lecturers of English speaking universities) who could help me and fill in an online questionnaire about the strategies of address employed in academic interactions among students and lecturers.
Your answers will help me to create an up-to-date picture of the address practices among native speakers of English, which I would like to compare with the patterns followed by students and lecturers using English as a lingua franca in similar contexts of interaction.
