RECRUITING ENGLISH SPEAKERS FOR LISTENING STUDY:

Requirements: age 18+, native speaker of English who does not speak any other languages (if you have studied or been exposed to another language but would not consider yourself an advanced/proficient speaker, you may still qualify), with no history of speech or hearing issues.

This is a computer-based study which involves listening to words in another language and completing various response tasks. You will choose one week of October 2021 during which you will schedule a series of sessions in the lab, approximately 10-15 minutes each and totaling about 2 hours overall. If you complete the experiment, you will be compensated $45 via an electronic Amazon gift card.
