Turktools are a set of free, open-source tools that aid in the construction of linguistic surveys for Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. The tools allow for the creation of a wide range of linguistic tasks, including linguistic grammaticality surveys, sentence completion tasks, and picture-matching tasks. Our tools further help streamline the design of such experiments and assist in the extraction and analysis of the resulting data.
