Experiments on Judgements of Syntactic Acceptability and Frequency: Report 1.
Greenbaum, Sidney
Overlapping samples of 191, 142, and 87 undergraduates rated pairs of sentences for the frequency and acceptability of the syntactic constructions represented to investigate the feasibility of using such ratings in the study of syntactic forms. The results indicated that subjects are consistent in their judgments of both the frequency and acceptability of the syntactic constructions tested, and that constructions rated high in frequency tend to be rated as more acceptable.
