The identification of attitudes spoken in Cantonese by English listeners was much less exact overall (ranging from 24% — 62%) and was notably poor for sarcasm and humor which were, as outlined previously, identified at chance accuracy level (24% and 29%, respectively). Interestingly, nearly one-half (45%) of the sarcastic expressions produced in Cantonese were identified as “sincere” by English listeners. Sentences conveying humor in Cantonese were more frequently categorized as sarcasm (35% of all responses).
On a practical level, our study highlights the fact that one must be sensitive to potential extra-linguistic difficulties that may arise in the vocal channel while communicating with interlocutors from different cultural backgrounds. Focusing on the identification of sarcasm, we found that both groups of listeners were sensitive to the sarcastic intent of utterances spoken in their native language but were highly error-prone for identifying sarcasm expressed in an unfamiliar language. Broadly speaking, these results argue that (native) experience with a language is essential for recognizing sarcastic intentions, as listeners had little ability to recognize this attitude from prosody in a foreign language.
