My last post generated enough interesting comments to provoke a sequel. In another part of the survey, for which I'm also responsible for ultimate scoring decisions, respondents are asked to say as many of the words they can think of that begin with either the letter "F" or "L" (which letter they get is determined randomly). The vast majority of responses are unproblematic. However, amidst the virtual stack of responses for which final coding decisions have to be made, here are five examples from each letter:
Also: for "L" words there was one respondent who said "Iraq." I suppose there are some who might argue that, in some respects, calling it "Lie-raq" would not be entirely unreasonable.
