Topic: "It ain't no rocket science": help wit ma MA thesis! ALL OF YOU CAN!

Oioi, punks,

I'm currently writing my M.A. Thesis in English linguistics. It's about everyday grammar use in English, and I've set up an online questionnaire, which I need a lot  (a L.O.T.) of people to complete.

It's not very long, and I reckon it might take 30 mins. to complete (please post replies here if I'm completely wrong), but you would help me a lot (a L.O.T.) if you took the time and filled it out.

It's found here:

And send the link to anyone you can think of...

Thanks a lot in advance!
Cheers,
H/C

Re: "It ain't no rocket science": help wit ma MA thesis! ALL OF YOU CAN!

Yeah, I'm using Chrome too. Nothing, I'm afraid.

Re: "It ain't no rocket science": help wit ma MA thesis! ALL OF YOU CAN!

Safari 5 is giving me blank screen on both links I'm afraid. I suppose I could fire up Firefox to do it...

Re: "It ain't no rocket science": help wit ma MA thesis! ALL OF YOU CAN!

Firefox works, so does IE, but I'll test Chrome and Safari today and post news here.
Thanks for your help everybody! Honestly greatly appreciated!

Re: "It ain't no rocket science": help wit ma MA thesis! ALL OF YOU CAN!

Done - I feel like I got a lot of it wrong.

There is society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar;
I love not Man the less, but Nature more."

Re: "It ain't no rocket science": help wit ma MA thesis! ALL OF YOU CAN!

I tended to use 'also' rather a lot...feels like it was too much.

I'll do it sometime today.

Done, I am terribly/dreadfully sorry it took me a while.

Re: "It ain't no rocket science": help wit ma MA thesis! ALL OF YOU CAN!

Made my head hurt a fair bit. I'm not naturally good at punctuation, I tend to use too much unneceserry punctuation. I also can't spell very well either.

Re: "It ain't no rocket science": help wit ma MA thesis! ALL OF YOU CAN!

@mparle: Nice one! ;-)

Doesnae matter! Thanks fer doing this. Also, as for punctuation there is no fixed set of rules in English (as far as I'm aware, apart from a few no-gos). So nae worries. I think I actually mentioned that in the Introduction bit, to give a hoot about punctuation.

Thanks all!
