I'm measuring attitudes to different verbs used in quotatives, as they're called, with the last couple of decades' rise in the usage of "be like" ("so I was like", "and then he was like", etc).

It's just for a small school project which is why the questions aren't that many. I'm using another study as base for this project, in which they have data from Canadians, which is why I want only Canadians to answer this.

I looked through the rules and couldn't find anything that says this isn't within the rules, so I hope this is fine. Feel free to ask if you have any questions

Yikes, just because I wasn't born in Canada I can't take the survey. Never mind my more than 4 decades of living in this country and my funny Canadian accent...

I realize this seems harsh, and my intention is not to offend. However, to participate in the study from which I am taking my data, you had to both be born and raised in Canada, so I wanted to be careful to use the same parameters.

Thanks for all your answers. You have until about Monday to answer the survey, before I have to compile the results, so if you haven't yet you still have time ;). I actually need at least a few more so if you want to make a Swede happy this is the way to do it!

Just curious... are you Canadian or, as your username might indicate, Swedish?

Nice short questionnaire btw. Until I read those questions it didn't occur to me how often sentences are said, like, you know, that way. :wink:

I can't really take it either, in all honesty... I don't get to speak English all that often, most days not at all.

I'm Swedish! Currently studying English at a uni here in Sweden. I'm getting my bachelor in English next year (*knocks on wood*) and what I'm doing from there remains to be seen. This all is for a course on regional and social variation in the English language.

Oh, and by the way, the original study is called "He's like, she's like: The quotative system in Canadian Youth" if anyone is interested. Unfortunately it's a little outdated, from 2004, but it examines the rise of "be like" (how often what verb is said).

Edit: I have now closed the survey. Thank you all for contributing! :)

Good. It was a weird thing to study unless you were looking at how language is influenced by media.
Nobody used "be like" at all until it crept into use here out of U.S. movies and tv. You'll get a funny look if you use that in adult conversation. Like you will if you say you "seen" something instead of "saw".
