The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."

Linguistic LingField(s):  Applied Linguistics

Query:   Dear all,

I am a research master student in Linguistics at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, and I need you for a research project I am conducting for my thesis.
Could I ask you to participate in this fun research on how people are able to infer the emotional state of their interlocutor? It is a follow-up of a survey in which participants were asked to guess (+ rate the intensity of) the emotion displayed by an actress in a couple of short video-recordings in English. In the present version, the video recordings have been replaced by audio-recordings, which might render the task more difficult.

We are looking for both native and nonnative speakers of English; all levels of proficiency are welcome.

Please do *NOT* participate in the present survey if you have already filled in the previous version of this questionnaire some weeks/months ago (you would recognize the first page)

Many thanks in advance for participating in this research project that I am conducting under Prof. Jean-Marc Dewaele's supervision (Birkbeck College, University of London).

Best,
Pernelle Lorette

PS: Do not hesitate to share this, also with nonlinguists! :)
