Linguistics Research Project – Appen (Remote)

Project Task

This project involves source research for a list of terms in US English, the grammatical expansion of those terms (morphological variants), the categorization of each variant with respect to identity (i.e., does or can the word refer to people and, if so, does it refer to ethnicity, sexual orientation, political opinion, etc.) and connotation judgments for each word (i.e., whether or not the word has or can have a pejorative connotation).
