If you can spare us a little of your time, and if you haven’t done so already, please take our fifth usage poll. If you do so, we will be able to study the difference in acceptability compared between when Mittins et al. first did the survey in the late 1960s and today. We’ve had a reasonable amount of response for the other surveys, but not for this one. Even lower results were found for usage poll 7. And perhaps, though this would be asking a lot of you, we know, usage polls 8, 9 and 10 as well? Five sentences in each poll only! For the full list, look here in the banner. Thank you very much indeed.
