Ron, you seem to know nothing about objective testing.   In a test situation
you want participants that have no exposure to theory or a position one way
or another.  Linguists have lots of exporsure perhaps even indoctrination to
the spelling of "ing" and have opinions.  I was saying let's get the opinion
of the unindoctrinated.

The term "prejudiced" is yours not mine.  So now you admit you lied when you
gave my supposed  words in quotes saying that I said "linguists are
prejudiced".  Basically I don't communicate with liars.  Nor should anybody.

I'd like to know where folks are from that write to me.  You ignore that.
