Query:   Dear Linguists,

I am an MA student doing researches on ''understandability'' of English sentences with errors; in other words, how well English learners can make themselves understood when they create sentences that include errors. Right now, I am looking for 300 respondents to a questionnaire to judge the ''understandability'' from:
1. Native speakers of English
2. Native speakers of Japanese
3. Native speakers of other languages.

Would any one of you please type in your opinion to the form, which you can access from the URL below:

The responses can be submitted via the web page, and you can receive the statistical result right after you submit your response. (NOTE: Please submit your response BEFORE clicking on the ''view the result'' icon, otherwise your response cannot be included in the statistics, nor be submitted.)

I will post a summary of the final figures by the end of 2004.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
