    • The questions
      What do you call someone who is the opposite of pigeon-toed (i.e. when they walk their feet point outwards)? 
      Do you pronounce "cot" and "caught" the same? 
      Do you use "spigot" or "spicket" to refer to a faucet or tap that water comes out of? 
      Would you say "Are you coming with?" as a full sentence, to mean "Are you coming with us?" 
      What do you call the long narrow place in the middle of a divided highway? 
      What do you call the insect that flies around in the summer and has a rear section that glows in the dark? 
      What do you call the miniature lobster that one finds in lakes and streams for example (a crustacean of the family Astacidae)? 
      What nicknames do/did you use for your maternal grandmother? (Paternal=Fathers side, Maternal=Mothers side)
      Cot vs. Caught
    • The Questions Cont..
      Dinner vs. Supper
      What about your paternal grandmother (is there a distinction between paternal and maternal?) 
      What is the distinction between dinner and supper? 
      What do you call the thing from which you might drink water in a school?

      What is the thing that women use to tie their hair?
      What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket? 
      What do/did you call your maternal grandfather?

    • My hypothesis
      My main areas of focus were going to be on the questions:
      • What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
      •   What is the thing that women use to tie their hair?
      • What do you call the thing from which you might drink water in a school? 
      • What do you call the miniature lobster that one finds in lakes and streams for example (a crustacean of the family Astacidae)? 
      • What nicknames did you use for you paternal and maternal grandmothers?
    • My hypothesis cont..
      • I chose these questions because I thought about all the different answers that my participants would give.
      • The answers that I planned to get would vary depending on the age and gender of the participants.
      • The men would answer differently to the grandmother question because of their “masculinity” and they would be less prone to call their grandmother “mimi”
      • The crawfish/crayfish question I was looking for how people spelled/said it differently.
      • The women were more likely to call them “crayfish” and the men would say “crawfish”
    • Responses
      What do you call the thing from which you might drink water in a school? 
      What is the thing that women use to tie their hair?
      Bubbler
      Water Fountain
      Water Bubbler
      Fountain
      The people who responded “bubbler” thought of a water fountain as something as an attraction or decoration.
      Elastic
      Ribbon
      Hair tie
      Scrunchy
      Pony-tail holder
      The people who responded “elastic” and “hair tie” were mainly men. The women said “scrunchy” and “ribbon”
    • Responses
