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,

We cordially invite you to participate in an online study on problem
solving, conducted as part of a collaborative research project involving
the intersection of cognitive science and linguistics at the Universities 
of Bremen and Bamberg (Germany). Participants are taken through 
example problems and are then asked to solve another problem by 
themselves. The problems are easy to understand and entertaining to 

The completion of the task will take approximately 20 minutes. 
Participants should be (i.e., consider themselves) native speakers of 
English. Since we do not wish to influence participants by describing 
what we wish to study before anyone performs the task, any questions 
(for example about the linguistic component of the task) should be sent 
directly to tenbrink at uni-bremen.de. Participation is entirely 
anonymous; a small number of demographic questions support the 
interpretation and assessment of the general validity of the collected 
data. Here is the link to the study: 


Please forward this information to your colleagues and graduate 
students if you think they might like to participate.

Thank you in advance - we very much appreciate the time and effort 
you invest in supporting us!
