I am working on a class project for a class I am taking at North Carolina State University with Walt Wolfram and I could use your help. I am collecting data via an online survey of language attitudes and speaker impressions. The survey consists of four parts: (1) a short questionnaire designed to assess language attitudes, (2) some demographic questions for statistical purposes, (3) a couple of recordings of individuals telling familiar children’s fairy tales along with questions about your opinions of the speakers and their speech, and (4) a very brief personality questionnaire. I believe it’s a fun, thought-provoking survey and I hope you find it to be so, too.
It would be so very helpful if you would take the time to complete the survey! Anyone over 18 can participate — linguists and non-linguists alike. Note, though, that participation does require you to do some listening. It takes about 15 minutes to finish. If you have any questions about your participation, the survey, or the study’s results, you can email me at mlrisdal (at) ncsu (dot) edu.

Thank you so much for your willingness to participate! Please do share this with anyone who may be interested. For the purposes of the study, it is necessary that I receive responses from a broad sample of people, especially geographically and ethnically.
