Is anyone with a background in linguistics/psycholinguistics interested in looking at and analysing some data from an audio case study that we have done with a Chinese English learner?
This is a 'before and after' audio clip of the learner comparing her first online conversation with me and then her sixth. A number of experts have found it fascinating and Stephen Krashen left a comment calling it 'Remarkable'.
[You will need to contact us for the link sorry, we are new here]
All of the data is there for someone to analyse in detail, word by word, what actually happened (just go to the main podcast page and you will see all of the episodes).
We could try and do it ourselves but we are a very small operation with limited time and would also prefer an external (and unconflicted) examination of the data.
Anyone who is interested can have a look at the data, this is a totally open/crowdsourced research project, but please do let us know if you are interested. We won't say yes, or no, we'd just like to know who is looking at it and from what kind of angle.
If you have any questions or need anything to carry out your analysis do please ask and we will be happy to assist.
