             Subject: corpus building questionnaire

    The Department of Linguistics at Lancaster University is currently undertaking
    some research into the needs of language engineers and linguists as regards
    corpus building in the indigenous minority languages of the British Isles (i.e.
    Cornish, Scottish Gaelic, Irish, Manx, Scots, Ulster Scots and Welsh). As part
    of assessing such needs we have developed a short web-questionnaire. The
    answers will be made anonymous and eventually contribute to a report which we
    are happy to send, free of charge, to all who participate in the survey.

    If you could spare a few minutes to complete the questionnaire it would be
    appreciated. Even if you are not working directly with these languages at
    present, it would be useful if you could fill it in with an eye to possible
    future work within this area.

    The questionnaire is at:
