Ah, the power of language! Perhaps you are studying socialogy and the Sagir-Wh orf hypothesis? The particular ch oice of words will influence attitudes and perceptions. Euphemisms, Doublespeak, sexist language all play a part. Some words, for example, are stigmatizing. Not only words, but differences in culture - body language, hand gestures might be perfectly acceptable in one area of the world and not in another. Have you ever been exposed to a foreign language? Think about your reactions.
P.S. Do not neglect pitch, intonation, for example
