Past Ability (Eng. Verbs)

Dear subscribers,

I am presently interested in obtaining your intuitive opinions about
inferences arising from the use of verbs expressing past ability in
English. I would be really appreciative if anyone who is interested in
completing a very brief survey would contact me, and I'll email them a
copy of it.

Thanks in advance,

Debra Ziegeler
