Bilingual Attitudes Towards Authority: A Canadian Study.
Ryan, Michael G.
The hypothesis of this Canadian study was that attitudes toward authority of French-English bilinguals would differ from the attitudes of French and English unilinguals toward authority. Student subjects responded to questionnaires using Likert scales to measure hostility, acceptance, anxiety, and neutrality toward authority. Analysis of variance indicates that French Canadians hold attitudes which are more hostile toward authority than English Canadians, while English Canadians tend to hold attitudes which are more anxious toward authority than French Canadians. Results also lend partial support to the research hypothesis which predicted that the attitudes of bilinguals toward authority would differ from those of both the French Canadian and English Canadian unilinguals.
