Dear All,

I am writing a PhD thesis on language attitudes and I am looking for
professors working at British universities who could forward some
information to their students and ask them to fill in my Google Docs
online questionnaire. Below is the text I send to my respondents:

I am conducting research into language attitudes for my PhD thesis. I
am looking for native speakers of British English (mono- or bilingual)
aged 18 to 25 who would like anonymously to complete a questionnaire
that can be found at the following address:

The subject matter of my survey makes me prefer respondents who do
not specialise in sociolinguistics or normative linguistics. If you would
like to help me please visit the webpage and to take the questionnaire,
please provide the following password: mratajq13.

If your scholarly interests include sociolinguistics, normative linguistics
or the Slavic languages, in particular Polish, and you need advice,
information or linguistics-related translation, do not hesitate to contact
me via e-mail, providing the above-mentioned password in the title of
your message.

Thank you in advance.
