I am doing a semantic research on these particular words. I would really appcreciate some help from native speakers. Could you please rate sentences according to a certain scale.
For your convenience I made it in a web-form.
Easy PHP form
Thank you very much! Comments are most welcome.
Thank you very much, xpert!
These links contain the best info on these words I ever found!
However, what I actually need is to conduct a survey. I have already some hypotheses, and they are quite similar to what is said about these words on forums. But these must be proven experimentally( using a poll of native speakers.
So, if you have some spare time, could you please fill in the form?) it would help really me...
