Are you a native English speaker who was raised in Washington, Oregon, or Idaho? Researchers in the Linguistics Department are investigating how well people understand different dialects of English when they are distorted or obscured by background noise. Participants will be paid $10 for short sessions (about one hour) or $20 for long sessions (about two hours). Participants must be over 18 years old.
Right now the researchers are specifically looking for pairs of friends or acquaintances of the same sex (both male or both female) who can come in together for about an hour some time during the month of August. If you’re interested, contact Valerie Freeman at firstname.lastname@example.org about setting up an appointment.
