All of our studies are currently running online! Unless otherwise stated all projects are for those aged 18+ only.
Come and show off your language switching abilities! In this study you will name pictures of objects out loud in both English and Dundonian - sounds simple, but this task reveals a lot about what's going on in the brain!
This study is for those already familiar with Dundonian Scots - although you don't necessarily have to speak it all the time yourself.
You'll need a PC/Laptop with an inbuilt or external microphone and it should take around 20 minutes.
(Tablets and Phones not currently supported for this type of study)
PERSONALITY FROM VOICE?
Our voices and speech carry more information than just the messages we are are trying to communicate. We use these extra cues to identify lots of different characteristics of a speaker. In this study you will hear Scottish male speakers and have to rate each one for a particular personality aspect - this will give us an insight into how even our personal qualities might be detected from our speech patterns.
This study is open to everyone, requires any type of device that is capable of playing sound - ideally with headphones - and should take around 10 minutes.
