Participants wanted!

 I am currently looking for people to participate in a study of bilingualism. It is part of an undergraduate course regarding the syntax of bilingualism at the University of Toronto. 

I require people who speak both Farsi and English and currently live in an English speaking country. The research experiment involves creating Farsi sentences using some English words, judging the acceptability of some mixed sentences, and a language profile questionnaire. 

It will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete. There is no compensation, but it is an opportunity to contribute to academic research regarding bilingualism (and you will be doing me a huge favour!). 

If you are interested in participating, or would like to know more, please comment here or email me at 

Thank you, and happy new year! 

(PS - you don't need to be able to read and write Farsi. It's all transliterated into the English alphabet!)
