Qs: Participants for a Perception Survey Wanted
Editor for this issue: Elyssa Winzeler
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.
To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

So far, I have gathered over 200 responses from English learners in Japan,
and I would like to compare the results with those from people with
different native languages.
Respondents of any age (over 18), any academic background, and speakers of
any language are welcome.
The questionnaire site will be up until the end of November 2009, and I
will post the summary, as well as sending the results to individuals upon
request. I would also appreciate it if you could pass on this message to
anyone who might be interested.
