My research project focusses on the processing of sociolinguistic meaning. More specifically, I am investigating how specific the linguistic units are that socio-indexical meaning is most importantly attached to (abstract segmental features, or more specific word-based exemplars). I am combining this with an exploration of whether it is possible to use semantic priming experiments to measure fully below-awareness activation of socio-indexical meaning.
