Recruiting Citizen Scientists to help figure out what words mean.

VerbCorner

We are recruiting Citizen Scientists to help figure out what words mean. Rather than try to work out the definition of a word all at once, we have broken the problem into a series of tasks. Each task has a fanciful backstory -- which we hope you enjoy! -- but at its heart, each task is asking about a specific component of meaning that scientists suspect makes up one of the building blocks of verb meaning. More information on this project can be found at: VerbCorner
