Dear Charlotte,

It looks like an interesting project.
However as a native speaker of Korean I'm curious what results you've obtained for Korean and other East Asian languages (Japanese and Mandarin). In these languages there is no culturally fixed verbal response to sneezing. Is the absence of a verbal response also part of your data?

From Hong Kong,

Hello Lingtyp-members,
I'm Charlotte and right now writing my master thesis in Hamburg on the typology of verbal responses to sneezing. For this I have been conducting interviews with native speakers of several different languages, but am still in search of more participants as to make my thesis more significant. During a presentation of my priliminary results, someone gave me the tip to write to this mailing list and so I turn to you!
The interviews are fairly short (about 15 minutes) and are conducted over the internet (in audio or video chats if possible). The questions are about how in your native tongue people react to someone sneezing in their vicinity and things connected to this.
I would be delighted to get as varied a pool of participants as possible even though all I can offer in return is my gratitude. Some languages are already covered: Amaharic, Assamese, Bangla, Czech, English, Finnish, Fula, Georgian, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Irish, Islandic, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Mandarin, Persian, Portugese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Sadri, Slovac, Spanish, Thai, Turkish, Urdu, Vietnamese, Yemba;
If you speak (or know people that speak) any other language(s) natively that are not covered in this list you have the potential to be a great help to me. Of special interest are languages natives to North and South America, of which I have so far 0.
If this sounds interesting to you and you would like to help me out, please contact me via mail or Whatsapp/Telegram/Signal.
