The impact of foreign accent on social interaction and coginitive thinking (SonoDrugs)

Generally, speakers with a foreign accent are judged as less trustworthy, less educated or less intelligent than native speakers. This negative bias seems to have different origins: linguistic and and social. The project will investigate 1) how foreign accent bias affects cognitive processes, and 2) the modulation of the foreign accent bias by social stereotypes and its consequences in the brain.
