Abstract of the presentation:

Language attitudes refer to people’s evaluative reactions to language. Historically, language attitudes have been explained with reference to social categorization and stereotyping: Listeners use speakers’ language to infer which social groups speakers belong to and attribute to them stereotypic traits associated with those groups. More recently, research has shown that language attitudes are also a function of listeners’ processing fluency, defined as the ease or difficulty listeners experience processing a person’s speech. According to the fluency principle of language attitudes, the more difficulty listeners experience processing a person’s speech, the more negatively they evaluate that person. In this talk, I review my research on the fluency principle and discuss how fluency-based interventions can be used to reduce language-based prejudice and discrimination.
