Faculty mentor: Rachel Hayes-Harb

This research replicated various aspects of the Rubin (1992) study, we wanted to see whether the findings in the Rubin (1992) study holds up under different circumstances and among a different population. The Rubin (1992) study tested whether students were having difficulty comprehending NNSTAs due to their accents or whether they were making assumptions about a person’s accent solely due to their visages, despite how strong their accents were, or if their accents even existed.
