Utah English (IRB2022-343)

Hi everyone!  My name is Chad Huckvale and I’m a student in the linguistics program at Brigham Young University.  Working with Dr. Joey Stanley, I am conducting research (IRB Study: IRB2022-343) for my masters thesis on Utah English.

If you have lived in the state of Utah for 1 or more years in the past 10 years, please take this survey that I have created which will help me understand how people perceive English is spoken in Utah.  The survey should take roughly 10 minutes to complete.  There is no payment for participation in this survey.

English Intonation (IRB E2020-159)

Who: Native speakers of American English

What: You will listen to some recordings of people talking, including some that have been modified so that they’re difficult to understand, and make judgments about the speakers, like where they’re from or if you think they sound friendly. It should last 15–20 minutes. Headphones are recommended.

Compensation: Course credit where applicable.
