RECRUITING ENGLISH SPEAKERS FOR SPEAKING STUDY:
Requirements: age 18+; native speaker of English born and raised in the US; does not speak any variety of Chinese and does not have Chinese-speaking parents; no history of speech or hearing issues.
This is a computer-based speaking study which involves reading English sentences out loud while being audio-recorded. The entire study will take place online, via your own personal computer. If you are eligible to participate, you will schedule a day in April 2023 to complete two short sessions with an experimenter. Altogether, the whole study will take approximately 20-30 minutes. If you complete the study, you will be compensated $15 via an electronic Amazon gift card.
To sign up for the study, please email the study coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In general, our studies take place in Room 117 of 617 Commonwealth Avenue on Boston University’s Charles River Campus. Participation in a study typically consists of filling out a background questionnaire and completing language tasks that involve speaking into a microphone and/or listening to audio recordings over headphones.
