"This questionnaire (which we will call the CCQ) is designed to explore the relationship between predicates and the clausal arguments they are compatible with." (Baker & Safir, 2012: 1)
This questionnaire is made up of English sentences to be translated into the target language in order to analyse the clausal complementation structures. The authors ask for the linguist " to translate all of the model sentences provided as best [they] can and indicate whether the result is acceptable or not in spoken discourse according to the following scale.
* - Not acceptable.
?* - Very marginally acceptable - somehow not totally unacceptable, but you would probably never say it.
?? - Very odd, though you might hear it or even catch yourself saying it.
? - Not fully acceptable, perhaps a little odd sounding, but you would not reject it.
OK - Natural in spoken discourse. " (Baker & Safir, 2012: 1-2)
