        This week's question is brought to you by Doug Ball, who suggested a poll
regarding the relationship between conlanging and music, especially
composition. When answering, please tell me what genre(s) of music you listen
to. If I see a statistically relevant pattern develop, I will make note of
it. Like last week, this will be a two-part poll, so pay attention!

        First question: Do you believe that music and conlanging have a high degree
of relationality to each other?
        A. There is a high degree of correlation between music and conlanging for
me. (Explain.)
        B. I think that music and conlanging fall into the same general categories
(art, hemispheres of the brain, whatever), but otherwise do not share much of
a relationship.
        C. There is no relationship between conlanging and music.
        D. Other.

        Second question: What is your musical activity?
        A. I compose music.
        B. I play a musical instrument.
        C. I listen to music.
        D. I abhor music.

        (Note: Answer the first one that describes you; that is, if you compose, it
can generally be assumed that you both listen and have at least the ability
to play a musical instrument. If you don't compose, but play a musical
instrument, it is a safe bet that you listen to music. Yes? :)

The Rules:
1. Reply to with your poll choice. DO NOT POST TO THE LIST!
2. If you desire, include a longer response in your email, outlining your
thoughts on the question.
3. By including a long response, you grant permission for your response to be
posted to the mailing list. If for some reason you wish to keep your response
private, please make that clear in the body of your email.
4. I reserve the right to edit your response for space and content. Not all
responses may be published.
5. All poll answers, however, will be accounted for. Multiple votes will not
count, you cheater. Hedging answers will be pounded into the closest category.
6. This is not scientific by any stretch of the imagination.
7. Poll topics welcome.
8. The poll results and a selection of responses will be posted next
Saturday, 16 March, along with a new poll question.
