Qs: Survey for English and Spanish Speakers/Students

Editor for this issue: Brent Woo <bwoolinguistlist.org>

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.cfm.

Dear Colleagues,

I hope this finds you well in the new academic year.

My name is Chris Sams and I am the principle investigator on a
research project in which we are examining the knowledge that English
and Spanish speakers have about when to use ‘tú’ and when to use
‘Usted’ in Spanish. The following link takes speakers/students to a
survey that should take 15 minutes of their time:


The survey will be open for 7 days. We would appreciate if you could
pass the link along to your colleagues/department; we are seeking
students who are studying Spanish at any level as well as native
speakers. At the end of the survey, there is a confirmation page should
you or your colleagues choose to have students print it out as proof of
participation as I know some professors give extra credit for
participating in studies.

The study should be concluded by the end of September; please feel
free to e-mail me in early October if you are interested in our findings.

Thank you again for your assistance,

Chris Sams
