Since more an more folks are running web-based experiments (typically, via Amazon’s Mechanical Turk or other platforms), I thought I’d put together a little sampling of demo experiments. We’ll keep updating this periodically, so feel free to subscribe to the RSS feed. Note that not all of the paradigms listed below have been developed by HLP Lab members (for credits, see below). We might release some of our paradigms for use by others soon. If you’re interested, please leave a comment below and subscribe to this page. This is the easiest way for us to make sure to keep you in the loop. Thank you for understanding.
- Priming, adaptation, and learning
- Phonetic adaptation (Experiment and code by Dave Kleinschmidt [HLP Lab], stimuli by Jean Vroomen [Tilburg University])
- Lexical adaptation (coming soon, Experiment by Ilker Yildrim [Robbie Jacob’s Lab, Rochester] and Judith Degen [MTanLab, Rochester], pyjamas code by Ilker Yildrim).
- multi-day language learning experiment
- iterated artificial language learning experiments (see A web‐based (iterated) language learning paradigm with human participants by T. Florian Jaeger, Harry Tily, Michael C. Frank, Jacqueline Gutman and Andrew Watt — really this was the work of Hal Tily [TedLab, MIT], Jacky Gutman [formerly HLP Lab], and Andrew Watts [HLP Lab])
- Magnitude estimation (Experiment and code by Neal Snider [formerly HLP Lab, now Nuance Technology])
And while I am at it, let me also recommend
- “Conducting behavioral research on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk” by Winter Mason & Siddharth Suri.
- “A new generation of data: Crowdsourcing and language studies” by Schnoebelen, T., R. Munro, S. Bethard, D. Clausen, V. Kuperman, V.T. Lai, R. Melnick, C. Potts & H. Tily.
- Plenty of nice presentations from the“Workshop on Crowdsourcing Technologies for Language and Cognition Studies” organized by Rob Munro and Hal Tily at the 2011 LSA Summer Institute, Boulder, CO.
