During the IATEFL Learner Autonomy Pre-Conference Event, I met Robert Moncrief. He is currently doing a PhD investigating people’s ideas regarding and attitudes to obscene/offensive language use in English. For me, this is an interesting area of language, as for some communities it is used a lot, and others avoid it completely, and in most cases it is completely absent from the classroom. If you have a few minutes and want to help him out, could you complete his survey.
I am currently a PhD student in English Philology at Helsinki University. This survey is part of my final thesis.
It’s quick, easy and painless. My survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes of your time. Please note that answering the questions is anonymous and no personal data will be saved and used for purposes other than this survey, (no names, etc.)
The address of the web survey is:
At this time the survey is only open to those who teach or study English in a formal environment (i.e. High School/University/College etc.). At a later date I will consider opening it up to “laypeople”.
