the word responders is grammatically correct. We usually say, responses or those who responded. . Responders is a word that few people would use.Victor I think you would tell me it is correct but that is not the way we are in the habit of saying it. Great work Victor. !!

Well, Mike, in my opinion, those people who respond  to///answer///reply to a survey question may have all the rights to be called "responders". At least, in Ukraine.....  Do you have any other suggestions?                                                     Anyway, many thanks for your meticulous reviewing and useful prompting.  Victor

I agree that the term 'responders' is, while not being incorrect, seems a little inappropriate in  that  it does not read smoothly. This is really aggravating, because there is a more official term for people who respond to surveys - but I just can't think of it!  :)

However, this is just a very tiny wrinkle in a perfectly ironed shirt  - if you know what I mean! :-)

This is very good work.

Congratulations!  :)

Of course, I'm in the know of that saying. Thank you very much for your native mind about my submission. I'm afraid that it'll be not easy for me to climb down from that cloud nine I'm on now thanks to your appraisal.

Respondants are those who respond.

Well written.

Dear sweet uncle,

I completely agree with your so discussed word " responders". British people are so conservative that they let no freedom for creation nor innovation. I respect your courage and your way of thinking, why not beeing the inventor, why it is always reserved to the others, why not you for once!

I personally will be using it on pupose to break up with dogmatism.

Sorry for my "chewed" english, I am here to learn

Best regards from Algeria

Thank you, dear, for commenting my submit and backing the  position of mine in choosing a proper word for those people who were surveyed. As you see the natives were sticking to the word "respondant" and completely excluded the possibility of saying  "responder". Very pity that they didn't recognize an innovator in me... Thanks for sharing your opinion with me. And don't bother: your way of speaking is perfect !!

Sweet granddad.
