Diversity in language: Impressions based on accent and ethnic appearance

 

On the one hand most research on ethnicity in social psychology, as well as in neuroscience, has focused on visual cues. On the other hand, a lot of linguistic research has studied the influence of foreign-accented speech omitting visual cues. In my talk I will show that accents are strong markers of ethnicity and influence social categorization, evaluations, and even brain reactions to others. I will do it on a basis of experiments conducted in Germany, where participants evaluated Turkish-origins and native German job candidates. Varying their accent and facial appearance evoked surprise and caused interesting reactions.
