Attitudes to Spoken Australian English: Judgements of Ingroup and Ethnic Outgroup Speakers.
Gallois, Cynthia; Callan, Victor J.
Australian Journal of Linguistics, v9 n1 p149-60 Jun 1989
Two studies examined Anglo-Australians attitudes toward male and female Australian and immigrant speakers using English. Results support view that foreign or ethnic accent is sufficient cue to elicit ethnic stereotypes, that such stereotypes are salient to Anglo-Australians, and that accent can combine with other vocal cues to social group memberships, such as sex, to elicit differential evalutions of speakers.
