Qs: Subjects Needed for Fantasy Project
Editor for this issue: Zac Smith
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.

Michelle Aldridge (Communication, Cardiff Univ) and I (Linguistics, Bangor
Univ) are running a new Survey to establish an International, discourse
corpus of people's fantasies. The full title of this project is : ''A
cross-cultural study of people’s Fantasies : The linguistic structure of
fantasies across social groups.''
Participation is accomplished through the Survey Monkey link offered below.
To begin, roughly 6 unidentifying questions about the submitter are asked
(eg country, age group, gender, English ability) and then after the fantasy
is offered (in complete anonymity) we ask another 5 or 6 questions that
relate to that fantasy. The entire process is completely anonymous and this
project has University ethical approval.
Also of importance is that we are not targeting any particular type of
fantasy and all types of fantasy will be welcome contributions.
We hope that members of this list will consider
(i) participating in this study: and/or
(ii) posting details of this study where possible so that we can collect as
large a data-set as possible.
This link is now LIVE & will be open until 1 October.
June & Michelle
