This MegaAcceptability Linking dataset consists of ordinal acceptability judgments for 50 clause-embedding verbs of English in 35 surface-syntactic frames. The data were collected on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk using Ibex on Mechanical Turk.
For a detailed description of the dataset, the item construction and collection methods, and discussion of how to use a dataset on this scale to address questions in linguistic theory, please see the following paper:
