I am doing a paper for my Language Concepts class regarding how a person's age and the area that they grew up in relates to the words that they use to describe certain things. I will ask eleven short and simple questions and record your answers along with your age, sex, and hometown- no names will be recorded. I appreciate any volunteers, and promise that it won't take much of your time!
**I ask that you send your answers to my in-box and do not post them as a response to this thread as to avoid influencing anyone else's answers.
Here are the questions:
1. What do you call the room/level of a house that is below ground level.
2. What do you call a sandwich that is on a long, large bread?
3. What do you call a small stream of water that is not big enough to be a river?
4. What do you call a round piece of dough, fried in fat, with a hole cut into the center?
5. What do you call a piece of cloth that a woman wraps/ties around her head or hair?
6. What is the common type of worm used as fishing bait?
7. What is a mobile vehicle (NOT MOTOR VEHICLE) that a baby stays in while the parents push them around?
8. What do you call a mark on the skin where somebody has sucked and brought the blood to the surface?
9. What do you call the bone from the breast of a chicken that is shaped like a horseshoe?
10. What do you call the place/spot in your elbow that causes a strange feeling when you hit it on something?
11. What do you call very young frogs that have tails but no legs yet?
I will only be able to use answers submitted before this time tomorrow!
