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.

Rebecca Hahn, one of our graduate students, is conducting survey 
research on the use of certain constructions by native and heritage 
speakers of Spanish in the United States. It would be greatly 
appreciated if you could pass the survey below on to any native or 
heritage speakers of Spanish you might be in contact with - the survey 
is online and takes 10-15 minutes and asks participants to complete 
sentences based on their thoughts or opinions. All surveys are 
anonymous. We'll be happy to share results with anyone interested. 

See message below:

Dear LINGUIST Listers,

My name is Becky Hahn, and I am a second year graduate student in 
Spanish Language and Literature at North Carolina State University. 
For my culminating project, I am studying the opinions and thoughts of 
native and heritage Spanish speakers about their native or family's 
native country/city in comparison with their current living situation. I 
have created a written survey/questionnaire that includes background 
information and open-ended opinion-based questions. This is an 
anonymous and voluntary survey. Participants must be 18 years or 

I am asking you to please pass the link to this survey along to anyone 
that is either a native or heritage speaker of Spanish.


The deadline for completing this survey is Friday, Dec. 3.  

Thank you for your help!

Becky Hahn
