Comment étudier l'influence des stéréotypes de genre et de race sur la perception de la parole ?

Abstract : This study questions the validity of experimental methods traditionally used in phonetics. We wanted to investigate the influence of gender and race stereotypes on the perception of attitudes and emotions through voice. Thus we used a method combining priming and matched guise technique to test how two independent groups of 55 subjects responded to evaluative sentences that were presented while they listened to short sound excerpts. Each sentence contained a feminine or masculine, french or maghrebian first name in order to prime the categories "woman", "men", "French", "Arabic". Interestingly, our results don't match those of previous studies and lead us to think that the reactions of the subjects towards gender stereotypes are less controlled than the reactions towards race stereotypes. We conclude that (1) closer attention must be paid to the interaction between researcher and subjects during experimental studies and that (2) cautiousness should be exercised in the interpretation of results produced through solely quantitative research methods.
