Abstract

The present study investigated how children weigh a person’s linguistic proficiency relative to the type of accent the person speaks with. Furthermore, we investigated if children’s reasoning about linguistic proficiency changes across their own linguistic and socio-cognitive development. We also explored whether children’s social preference judgments differed depending on linguistic error types (e.g., grammaticality or semantics).
