**Project outline for 2011_6** *Keywords: psych verbs; emotion verbs; trials of the heart; English* ---------- **Overview:** The original trials of the heart task. Participants are told that willfully or negligently causing an emotion in another person is now illegal. They are on the high court and will hear court cases (e.g., Sally loved Mary") and decide whether anyone caused a crime (or nobody -- these things just happen). Experiencer-object verbs are overwhelmingly caused by the subject whereas experiencer-subject verbs are overwhelmingly not caused by anyone. **Publications:** Hartshorne, O'Donnell, Sudo, Uruwashi, Lee, and Snedeker (in press). Psych verbs, the Linking Problem, and the Acquisition of Language. Data for Exp. 2. **Team:** 1. Joshua Hartshorne 2. Jesse Snedeker **Data Collection:** Cambridge **Description** **Materials:** 42 experiencer-subject and 216 experiencer-object verbs. Not sure why some Levin (1993) verbs were excluded. Presumably they were infrequent verbs. **Participants:** 20 participants, run in the lab. None excluded. Order of options was always: subject, object, neither (listed vertically) **Notes:** None
