Speakers of languages such as Dutch, German, French and Spanish have a choice between using either a polite (V) or an informal (T) pronoun when addressing others. Within this project, you will investigate the effects of using either pronoun on addressees.
Two PhD candidates will measure the impact of being addressed with T or V pronouns in Dutch, German, French and Spanish in a series of psycholinguistic experiments (questionnaire, self-paced reading, eye-tracking, EEG, skin conductance). You will contribute to this research and collaborate with the PhD candidates in designing and conducting the first sets of experiments. You will also be responsible for the organisation of two societal symposiums, one for language teachers and one for communication advisors, as well as for the organisation of a scientific workshop on address research.
