Introspection, Observation, and Experiment: An Example Where Experiment Pays off

The standard methodology for testing theories about syntax and semantics, which has been attacked both by philosophers and by sociolinguists, depends heavily on the personal introspection of the professionals. An improved data-collection methodology is proposed and an extended example of its application to a long-standing data dispute on a question of theoretical interest is given.
