リアルTOEIC surveyのコローケーション

 
アンケート調査はTOEICでも定番ですね。Vol6でも紙とオンラインの2種類のsurveyが登場していました。

そこで登場していたこロケーションはfill out a surveyとcomplete a surveyでした。どちらもsurveyに記入する=答えるといった意味ですね。

Please take the time to fill out this survey and return it in the addressed, postage-paid envelope we have provided.

Before ending your wireless Internet session, please complete this brief survey.

ちょと横道にそれますが住所が印字済みで切手も貼ってあるような返信封筒のことをaddressed, postage-paid envelopeと表現するのですね。

ちょうどWSJから読者アンケートの依頼のメールがきていましたので、survey関連でどんな表現が使われているか見てみたいと思います。

アンケート調査を主催する側の表現としては、conduct a surveyとcarry out a surveyが登場しています。on one’s behalfとかin accordance withとかTOEICパート5好きにはたまらない表現もありますね(笑)

定番コロケーション以外にもmaximize your survey experienceやThis survey is not optimized for Blackberry devices.という表現がありますね。何気なく書いていますが、Blackberryの時代が確実に終わっていることを感じ取れます。。。
