    The topic is related to the psychology of language. Dr. Pastizzo will share two experiments that Geneseo students enjoy. One is on how hedge word usage (um, uh) actually helps the listener, and the other is on how negative framing to express something positive like competance (e.g., not stupid) can actually perpetuate stereotypes.
