“There are more women in joggeur·euses than in joggeurs: On the effects of gender-fair forms on perceived gender ratios in French role nouns”
Julia Tibblin is a doctoral student in French linguistics since the autumn 2020.
Her thesis project deals with gender inclusive language, langage inclusif, in French. Gender inclusive forms can be created in different ways, for example étudiant-es or étudiants et étudiantes. More specifically she wants to use eye tracking technology in order to study how people read gender inclusive texts, since it has received a lot of criticism saying that it makes the texts unreadable.
She is also interested in linguistic attitudes and how they are influenced by different factors such as what French speaking country a person comes from.
