  1. I've been taking a class on the philosophy of language this semester. It's been technical enough that the material more or less overlaps with linguistics. We've mostly just been talking about the language people use to make claims about ethics in normal, everyday speech. In other words, we've been talking about the common use of words like 'ought' and 'should' rather than the meaning of 'ought' and 'should'. (If that sounds subtle and arcane, worry not; it is.) I've been tasked with writing a paper for the course, but the professor requested I take a survey of native English speakers before making any broad, sweeping, philosophical claims. (How dare he be so responsible.) Naturally, I have no funding to conduct a legitimate live-interview phone survey of a demographically representative sample of sufficient size to make any real claims. Thus, I turn to the next best thing: Duelistgroundz. If you'd like to help out a fellow DGz-er, take my SurveyMonkey survey on the use of the words 'ought' and 'should' in a few basic contexts. (It's extremely short and informal.) Here's the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8F5CYTD I thank you all in advance for your continued benevolence.
