Abstract/Description: Two experiments were conducted to determine the role of gender stereotyping in individual spoken words. There were similar results for a phoneme monitoring (Experiment 1) and lexical decision (Experiment 2) task, with overall faster responses to the female speaker saying gendered words. Further analyses show highly significant interactions between speaker voice and word gender in both experiments, going against the initial hypothesis of male-masculine and female-feminine advantages. Future research could explore gender stereotyping in speech within a larger, more semantically rich environment, such as sentences.
