    Default Looking for native speakers of English to take part in an online experiment.

    We are looking for native speakers of English who have a spare 6-9 minutes to take part in an experiment that investigates a property of the English language.

    You will be presented with pictures and asked to fill in words.
    The task is quite easy but very interesting for our research.
    You can go to the online-experiment right now, which is located at:

    www.student.ru.nl/peter.hendrix/english/


    If you are interested, we offer you information about our research question and results afterwards.

    Thanks in advance,
    Peter Hendrix & Matthias Sjerps.

    P.S.: We contacted the administrator to ask for permission to post this topic. It was granted. :)

    There were a few I just couldn't figure out, and so I left them blank, or rather gave the double question mark (??). It wasn't until later that I caught on to what was being asked of me; e.g., four arrows under clothes?? Ah! Clothes hanging on a line.

    The one depicting a small apple and a glass bowl was ambiguous, no? The fruit was either in the bowl or it was a decal on the bowl.

    Oh, and jewellery; e.g., the necklace is both on and around the person's neck.

    Hi. Is the experiment still open? I'd like to do it, but it's asking me for a user name and password and can't get past that part. Thanks.
