Please allow me to introduce myself: my name is Kerstin Richter; I am a PhD student of the University of Regensburg in Bavaria. My dissertation project in English linguistics focuses on historical dialect bird names and their present day use.
In order to collect the necessary data, I am herewith kindly asking for your help. I would be extremely grateful if you could forward the following link to the members of your bird society:
Of course you are also very welcome to take part in my little survey yourself. It will take up only 5-10 minutes of your time, and no personal details will have to be disclosed.
If you or the participants have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail or telephone.
Any contribution to my studies will help me immensely and your support is very much appreciated.
Very warm wishes,
