Perceiving performed gender

Chariatte, Nadine (29 April 2014). Perceiving performed gender (Unpublished). In: BeLing Kolloquium. Bern. 29.04.2014.

There are many clichés about gender-related differences in speech, even though most of them could not be linguistically proved. However, as these ideas of female and male speech persist, they influence the perception of female and male speakers. The focus of analysis of this study is on how Flipa, a female character played by a man in the Spanish TV programme El hormiguero, is perceived by women and men, comparing a Spanish and a Swiss audience. The methods employed are three Likert scales consisting of ten Likert items each, based on stereotypes about female and male speech (and behaviour). For men, Flipa’s performance is more convincing than for women. Furthermore, the participants not only judge Flipa on the female–male axis, but stereotypes about Spanish people also come into play in the case of the Swiss informants.
