There were twenty participants (table 1). All had completed at least three years of college. Fourteen were male; sixteen were native English speakers. Eight were undergraduates and eleven were graduate students. One was not currently a student. Participants were recruited from Computer Science and Linguistic undergraduates and Computer Science, Linguistics and Optics graduate students using newsgroups, personal invitation, and announcements made in classes. All participants signed consent forms, and each was paid $7.50/hour for participating in the data collection.

Participants worked in pairs. 70% of the participants knew each other.
