[OQSPS] Name features and social status

#10
Dr. g,

I have amended all the sentences you mentioned. I have added the following footnote:


Rare name features result mainly from rare patterns in Danish names and from names from other languages. Since most non-Danish languages are below Danish social status (especially the non-European ones) (Kirkegaard & Fuerst, 2014), the patterns in them will generally have a negative effect size and be rare, producing the left tail of effect sizes. Furthermore, by sampling theory, we expect larger effect sizes to come from smaller samples in general and this will be seen in both tails. In fact, every pattern with an absolute effect size above 1 (n = 93) had a sample size of 71 or fewer (see plots in supplementary materials), and the correlation between absolute effect size and sample size is -.13 [95CI: -.19 to -.07].


which includes what you suggested (non-European names particularly low in social status and particularly foreign, resulting in many rare patterns with large negative effect sizes). The whole reasoning here is a bit elaborate and not really worth going into for this paper and this side-finding. The more distant a language is to Danish, the more linguistic patterns will be associated with it, and of course the more genetically distant the speakers will be etc.

Files updated.
