The results we present here are only a first step towards a data-based approach to understanding bias in Linguistics. Ultimately, we would like to use such results to come up with meaningful solutions for the issue.
Broadly speaking, there are two avenues for future directions:
- Conduct further descriptive work to identify where and why the bias exists, including looking at things like race, native language, sexual orientation, etc.
- Collectively come up with solutions to such problems of bias.
We invite you to help contribute to both of these efforts.
