Call for Participants

Welcome back to a new school year, everyone! I am posting a call for participants from a fellow linguistics undergraduate. I believe you can email her for a copy of the survey file.


I am an undergraduate student here at UVic and I’m carrying out a study to see how speakers of English as a first language and speakers of English as an additional language differ in how they write their emails in order to inform the creation of academic email writing workshops.  If you want to help me out, all you have to do is:

1.      Read the letter of information below.
2.      Fill out the attached survey and send it back to me (bkoneill@uvic.ca)
3.      Submit 2-3 emails that you have sent to an instructor within the past year to me! (bkoneill@uvic.ca) Please ensure that all submitted emails are only your own messages and do not have copies of instructors’ responses attached.

Please do not respond to this post here, just send your responses directly to me.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
