Abstract [en]

A gender-fair language reform in Swedish led to the implementation of the gender-neutral pronoun 'hen'. As arguments against the implementation, people argued that 'hen' was biased (some argued 'hen' was feminine, others that it was masculine). This study tested those hypotheses using an eye-tracking paradigm. No gender bias was found.
