We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Dear colleagues,

As part of an ongoing research project at the Institute for German 
Language in Mannheim, Germany, financed by the Gottfried Wilhelm 
Leibniz Scientific Community, we are collecting empirical data on the 
use of online dictionaries, as only a few studies exist in this area.
To this end, we are conducting online surveys in German and English. 
Our current study examines how users evaluate several features or 
elements of online dictionaries and how they rate different visual 
representations of information. 

We would be very grateful if you would support our research by 
participating in this survey. The survey should take approximately 25 to 
30 minutes to complete. Until September 16, it can be launched using 
any web browser by clicking on the link below:


In return for your participation, you may enter our drawing for 10 
Amazon vouchers, worth 10 Euro each. In addition, we will donate 1 
Euro for  each completed questionnaire to the programme "Girls' 
Education", which is part of the aid project "Room to Read" 

Furthermore, we would be grateful if you could forward this email or the 
link to people who might be interested in participating, e. g. colleagues 
or your students.

Thank you very much for supporting our research.

Kind regards,
Carolin Müller-Spitzer
