Linguistic LingField(s):  Psycholinguistics

Query:   Dear all,

We invite your participation in a survey through which we hope to obtain
ratings on several English verb characteristics, such as imageability and
action-relatedness. Many known lexical databases have missing values for
the verbs of our interest, so we aim to compile a representative data set
for use in psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic studies. Results of the
verb ratings will be made public via our website and announced on Linguist

The survey is anonymous and should take about 10 minutes to complete. Your
participation is much appreciated!
