When and where? The project was located in the Manor House at Ryedale Folk Museum for 3 weeks from Tuesday 27 March to Wednesday 18 April 2012. Visitors were asked what words they would use for some common things - eg a stream, feeling hungry, having a headache etc.
What happens next? The results of the questionnaire will be posted on this website. Please pop back and check out the results later this week!
If you missed it, this is what the project is all about: I am Christina Hughes, an English Language student at the University of Leeds. I am interested in mapping words to regions in England. My questionnaire focuses on the variety of words used for a range of concepts. The concepts are related to the Village Store, the Chemist, and the water course at Ryedale Folk Museum.
Special thanks to those who made this project possible: Kevin Simms, David Stockdale and Emma Colclough at Ryedale Folk Museum and Dr. Fiona Douglas at the University of Leeds.
