    Default Should I use 'elicited' instead of 'extracted' in this context?


    To achieve this goal, a number of 24 qualified male and female informants consisting
    of an equal number of literate and illiterate adolescents, youths and adults
    were interviewed and the linguistic variables under investigation were
    extracted from their speech

    Possibly, though I don't think so. We need more context to be sure.
