When speaking out hate-speech posts aloud, the prosody that speakers use can drastically change how listeners rate these posts in terms of personal (un)acceptability and consequences for the originator. But, does this also apply to the silent (implicit) prosody that we hear in our head while reading a post? Paving the way to answering this question, the present paper investigated how readers' explicit prosody is connected to their hate-speech ratings. Results provide evidence for this connection and, moreover, show that migration background plays a role for both the prosody and evaluation of hate-speech posts.
