Attitude Survey: Quotative "van" in Dutch

Hi everyone,

I'm an MA student in Linguistics doing a survey on attitudes towards the construction (zo)(iets) van in Dutch. A few studies have been done on this construction (syntax, pragmatics, development), but to my knowledge no one has looked at speakers' attitudes towards it. I'm looking for both L1 and L2 (in fact I'm especially interested in language learner's attitudes) speakers of Dutch; any age/gender/linguistic background/variety spoken/etc. welcome.

My survey takes 15-20 minutes to complete and can be found here (https://uleidenss.eu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_5iqsrPiG56sFtMF).

Thanks in advance to anyone who helps out! :)

I filled it out. Kudos for including 'other' and 'rather not say' options under gender.

Filled it out. One note which I couldn't add to the survey: the construction is used when you speak Dutch, not when you write it. If a person uses these constructions when writing, I have a totally different opinion about them :)
