Subject: Survey: Native Speakers of American English Needed
E-mail this message to a friend
I am looking for native speakers of American English living in the United
States who could help me by filling in a short questionnaire about the
use of English by Hispanics living in the USA.
If you want to contribute and have approximately 10 minutes to spare,
please visit the following page for further instructions:
You will listen to 10 recordings and at the end you will be able to watch
the videos of these speakers.
Your answers will help us to find out what perceptual correlates of
Spanish-accented English are and what their relative importance is.
Thank you for your help,
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
