This short survey is a small part of a much larger project looking into the language of young people, particularly those who live in inner-city urban settings (details here). Although much of the project is focused on the young people themselves and the ways in which they use language, it is just as important to get an understanding of the ways in which their use of language is perceived by other people. We are particularly interested in the views of people who are directly involved in interviewing young people in either an employment context or in an education context in the UK. If you are one of these people, and if you are able to spare no more than 10 minutes to answer a few questions, we would very much appreciate it.
If you have any questions about the survey or the project, or if you would simply like to know more, please contact R.Drummond@mmu.ac.uk.
Your participation is completely anonymous. We will not collect any information that could identify you as an individual. The data will be used for the sole purpose of this research project.
