:: How Likely? - A Plausibility Survey ::
  Elizabeth Johnson, Jesse Snedeker
Harvard University
  What kinds of information do we use in our everyday language comprehension? Word order, general knowledge, intonation, emotion... and plausibility. If you hear a restaurant employee ask "Can I bake your order?" you know that the resulting interpretation is implausible. It would be much more plausible to ask "Can I take your order?" In this study, we ask you to rate the plausibility of 48 sentences describing events taking place in a playroom setting. We hope to use these ratings as the basis for a more extensive exploration of our use of plausibility in language processing.

University of Michigan
  We are interested in common beliefs about racial groups. This study is a pilot-test for a later series of studies. We are asking you to help us by acting as an informant on your society. In this study, you will rate how much members of the United States, in general, think a number of traits are seen in members of different races. We will also ask you to rate each trait on how negative or positive it is. Our goal is to develop, with your help, a set of traits that will accurately represent the general public’s beliefs for use in future studies. In exchange for your participation, we will tell you about some of our more interesting hypotheses, and you will have the option to learn more about our research as it progresses. Although at this time we are primarily interested in representatives from the U.S., we would like to examine perceptions of U.S. beliefs by people from other nations as well - so we hope that if you are not from the U.S., you will still participate! Your data will be helpful to us in generating hypotheses for future studies.
