View Full Version : Similar sounding words experiment

Hi everyone,

I'm a linguistics student at the University of Canterbury, and I'm running an online experiment about similar sounding words.

If you were born and raised in New Zealand, are at least 18 and have 10 minutes to spare I would be really grateful if you took part. You need speakers or headphones.

You can access the experiment at the following address:


Many thanks,

It looks like I've had some people from here do the experiment, so thanks everyone.

I'm going to be making some changes to the experiment soon, but first I need to get a few more guys under the age of 30 to do the experiment the way it is at the moment.

So any guys under 30 who'd like to give it a go, I'd really appreciate it.

You can also get in touch if you'd like to find out what I find in the experiment in a couple of months.
