Language Attitudes and Social Perception
Lecture no. 12 from the course: Language and Society: What Your Speech Says About You
Taught by Professor Valerie Fridland | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses
Attitudes about language play a significant role in our social existence. Examine how we evaluate others by whether their speech sounds correct, ethnic, foreign, or like our own. Consider how we alter our speech in response to what we hear, and how our beliefs about other speakers actually influence what we hear.
