  • From the Typological tools for field linguistics website:

    ''The goal of this questionnaire is to obtain an overview of metaphorical expressions in a wide variety of the world's languages, in order to seek out universalities and diversities in the domain of figurative language. The questionnaire may be filled out in varying degrees of detail. Realistic response times might vary from half an hour to a few hours. The questionnaire is currently available in English, Indonesian and Portuguese versions, for use by linguists in different contact-language situations.''

  • From the Typological tools for field linguistics website:

    ''This questionnaire contains a tentative list of questions to be answered by any typologically oriented study of imperative sentences in a specific language based on the model proposed in Chapter 1 of Typology of Imperative Constructions, ed. V.S. Khrakovskij, Lincom Studies in Theoretical Linguistics, 09 (2001).''

  • From the Typological tools for field linguistics website:

    ''The author describes the purpose of their questionnaire as follows: It is generally acknowledged that perception of and orientation in space are determinant factors in human action and interaction. As such, speech heavily depends on knowledge of the context: Where and When is a sentence uttered, and by Whom. These three dimensions are traditionally seen as the so-called deictic centre of all linguistic events, without which no linguistic expression can be properly interpreted.

  • From the questionnaire's introduction:

    "This questionnaire is loosely based on a questionnaire originally designed by Alexis Dimitriadis and Martin Everaert of Utrecht OTS (and adapted from theirs with their permission)."

    The questionnaire was used to develop the African Anaphora Database, which is part of the Afranaph project directed by Ken Safir.

  • From Anaphora Typology Questionnaire, Dimitriadis and Everaert, 2002:

    "Our goal is to collect information on all “strategies” that your language uses to express a a reflexive or reciprocal relationship. We use the term “strategy” (rather than, say, “anaphor” or “reflexive morpheme”), because it is not always possible to identify a specific word or morpheme that can be said to be the reflexive.

  • From Typological tools for field linguistics website:

    ''This is a questionnaire designed to investigate agreement in number and gender. It was used as the basis for a number database of fifteen languages that is available on the internet (Surrey Database of Agreement). The following explanation of the subject matter of the questionnaire and database is taken from the database website.

  • Developed by Bettina Zeisler, within the framework of the DFG project "Evidentiality, epistemic modality, and speaker attitude in Ladakhi -Modality and the interface for semantics, pragmatics, and grammar"
