TUL Questionnaires


    • This questionnaire was distributed among contributors to an edited volume of fieldwork- and corpus-based studies on reported speech (publication planned for 2022), with the aim of maximising the coverage of phenomena in the volume and prompting various analytical judgements about pragmatic and grammatical aspects of reported speech encountered by the authors.

      Comments on the questionnaire would be very much appreciated and should you wish to share a completed questionnaire, please forward it through the email address provided in the document.

    • This questionnaire was designed as part of the data collection procedure for my current grant whereby I study tense-aspect categories restricted to the domain of negation. The not-yet category is grossly understudied so data triangulation is vital for this project: I use grammars, parallel text and data elicitation. This questionnaire is used for the latter.


    • These storyboards were developed in the context of the MelaTAMP project, hosted at HU Berlin, funded by the German Research Foundation from 2016 to 2019. The goal of the project was to learn more about tense, aspect, modality and polarity in Oceanic languages, based on pre-existing corpus data and on additional elictations based on storyboards. A particular focus was on the realis/irrealis distinction, other work concentrated on perfect aspect, habituality, expressions of possibility and timitive/apprehensive structures.

    • I created this questionnaire for my master's dissertation at the Université Paris-Diderot and the University of Edinburgh (Erasmus), under the supervision of Prof Agnes Celle. I organised a short field trip in the Scottish Borders in early January to get as much data as possible. It was an invaluable experience and more of these concrete experimental methods should be encouraged in the future.

      Special thanks are due to Dr Anthony Bour (University of Freiburg) for providing basic guidelines in the creation of the questionnaire.
