Bilingualism and Emotion 2
I just want to thank those of you who completed the questionnaire on bilingualism and emotion. There were 36 responses all together, and Iâ€™ll be giving a presentation about it tomorrow.
The information collected was very interesting, and wasnâ€™t entirely what we expected. For example, the number of people who preferred to use their first language to express their deepest feelings and terms of endearment wasnâ€™t as high as previous studies have found. What seemed to be more important was the context and how well people know each language.
Iâ€™m now collecting data for a study on colour vocabulary. This time Iâ€™m looking for bilingual speakers of any language, and monolingual English speakers. If you can help, please complete the questionnaire on this page.
[Update] – for various reasons I will only be collecting data about colour vocabulary from monolinguals online (the data from bilinguals will be collected offline). So if you consider yourself to be a monolingual speaker of English or another language, please complete the questionnaire.
