Colbertian Research Study
The Bilingualism and Psycholinguistics Lab in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University is conducting a study of how people learn words in a new language.
If you agree to participate, you will first be asked about the languages that you know, then you will learn some words in a made-up language and complete a short test. The research study will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
Your participation in this study does not involve any risk to you beyond that of everyday life. You are not likely to have any direct benefit from being in this research study, but taking part in this study may help researchers to better understand how people learn new languages. Participation in this study will involve no cost to you. You will not be paid for participating in this study.
At the end of the study, you will be asked to volunteer your email address in case the researchers have follow-up questions about your language background. Your email will be stored separately from your data and will only be available to research staff on a password protected computer. You are not required to provide your email address.
Your participation in this research study is completely voluntary. The results of the research study may be published in aggregate, but no individual data point or identifying information will be used. You can skip questions in the study and you can withdraw at any time by exiting the website.
