(Apologies if you receive more than one of these.)

Some of you did a card sort for me a couple of months back. The results have been used in an article that is currently with the editor, so hopefully it will be available early next year.

In the meantime, I have another project on the same lines (fruit and vegetables) but it's a little bit longer. It should still only take between 10 and 15 minutes. Also, for reasons I cannot go into just yet, there are some very specific instructions (these are repeated on the web site):

1. If you were born in an ODD year, create a group called Green Vegetables. DO NOT create a group called Salad Vegetables or similar. Then follow the remaining instructions starting at 3, below.
2. If you were born in an EVEN year, create a group called Salad Vegetables. DO NOT create a group called Green Vegetables or similar. Then follow the remaining instructions starting at 3, below.
3. All groups (from steps 1 or 2 above and the others you are free to create) should have between 2 and 6 items.
4. No groups should be given Latin names - so avoid brassicas, alliums and so on.
5. No groups should be personal - so no 'I don't like these', 'I grow these at home', 'Yuck' (this is a real group name from a previous study!)

I will choose an email address at random from the results, so make sure your email address is correct. It will not be used for any other purpose. If your address is drawn and you have followed the instructions above you have won the draw. I will contact you to see what country you would like your gift voucher for.

The URL for the card sort project is http://bit.ly/vMQkwW

It will be open until Friday 16 December.
