Hi all,

Michelle Aldridge (Communication, Cardiff Univ) and I (Linguistics, BangorUniv) are running a new Survey to establish an International, discoursecorpus of people's fantasies. The full title of this project is : ''Across-cultural study of people’s Fantasies : The linguistic structure offantasies across social groups.''

Participation is accomplished through the Survey Monkey link offered below.To begin, roughly 6 unidentifying questions about the submitter are asked(eg country, age group, gender, English ability) and then after the fantasyis offered (in complete anonymity) we ask another 5 or 6 questions thatrelate to that fantasy. The entire process is completely anonymous and thisproject has University ethical approval.

Also of importance is that we are not targeting any particular type offantasy and all types of fantasy will be welcome contributions.

We hope that members of this list will consider(i) participating in this study: and/or(ii) posting details of this study where possible so that we can collect aslarge a data-set as possible.

This link is now LIVE & will be open until 1 October.

cheers,June & Michelle
