    native speakers: acceptability of sentences

    Hello,
    will I find 5 native speakers of English willing to help with my research project? It will only take you about 3-5 minutes. I'd like you to tell me what you think about 20 sentences - are they in good English or not? Beyond your country of origin, no personal information is collected. Please fill out the form at

    I would do it myself but unfortunately my mother tongue is not English. Thank you very much.

    Some tricky ones there that are more about the language used than the verbs, but I have answered.

    I did have to stop and think about some of them, especially given the criteria but I've completed and submitted it. Your link wasn't clickable so to make it easier for anyone else, click HERE
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
