According to one study, the Cordobes are...

We tell you in this note about the scientific study that details how the rest of the country sees the Cordobes, according to their way of speaking.

How we talk

The story begins with scientific research aimed at analyzing the tones and prejudices that revolve around them. In this case, it is a study based on the tune of the cordobeses and all the ideas that are triggered when someone hears a cordoban talking. The study was conducted at the UBA and is a sociolinguistic research in which interviews are conducted that attempt to unmask people's imaginaries of a Cordovan. The title of the research is “The perception of Cordoba's speech”. And it was published in 2015 in the official journal of the Institute of Linguistics of the University of Buenos Aires (UBA). The idea of this group of linguists is also to identify the sensations, emotions and prejudices aroused by the Cordovan tune.

How to do it made

The results were obtained by means of hearing tests and questionnaires. The auditory perception test included recordings with excerpts of sentences pronounced by Cordoba, “balanced by sex, age and social class”. For control, “natives of Buenos Aires and Tucumán, of both sexes were included.” The listeners who gave their perspectives were Argentines from different regions of the country.

After a series of hearing sequences and questions about them, listeners had to take a step further. Choose from 12 adjectives associated with the Cordovan heard. “From what you heard, do you think this person is lazy, hardworking, quiet, understanding, cultured, sarcastic, self-confident, serious, selfish, funny, boring or small-town?” It was so that the Cordoba people were described as funny and caring. They were also identified as villagers.

Funny. funny and supportive

The study concludes that the Cordoba people see us as “funny, funny and supportive, but little cultured and very villerino”. So, we continue to perpetuate “the stereotype that associates the Cordovan character with humor and joke ”. What do you think? I just hope that, in all these years, perception has changed a little.
