Researchers at the University of Edinburgh are looking for participants to take part in an online experiment before Tuesday 9th July.

Only non-identifiable data (e.g., age, gender, language experience) will be collected. All data will only be used for research purposes and will not be shared with a third party.

You will get £6 or $7.5 as a reimbursement (contact Na Xie).
