I am passing along this from,
Betsy Sneller PhD student in Linguistics
University of Pennsylvania
I'm a graduate student in linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania, and I'm looking for people born and raised in the Philadelphia area to take part in a research study about Philadelphian language.
Are you from Philadelphia or the surrounding area?
If so, you're needed! I'm looking for people born and raised in the Philadelphia area to take part in a research study about Philadelphian language for the chance at $200.
You will hear a story, then rate the speaker along a number of social dimensions. In addition, you will listen to some words and judge how good they sound. The study should take approximately 20 minutes, after which your name will be added to a raffle drawing. The winner will get to choose whether they keep the money or have it donated to a charity of their choice. Your participation is voluntary and anonymous.
