Owl Side

My wondrous native English speakers...

....how I could use your judgements. If you would be willing to participate in a semantics "experiment", I would be terribly terribly grateful. It involves you giving judgements on the acceptability of sentences. It shouldn't take very much of your time at all, and I'll offer the additional incentive of giving you a classification of what sort of English speaker you are with respect to this particular phenomenon.

If you would be willing to humor me by doing this, please send me email at firesylph AT gmail DOT com.

(Many of you who read my livejournal are probably already familiar with this sort of experiment and may, in fact, have done something very similar to it several months ago. Much love for that, indeed.)
