Hey guys I'm not sure how to develop my TOK research question and my PPD is due tomorrow! My RQ is how language affects our emotions and reasoning, like how people can manipulate language to trigger certain emotions like announcing someone's death or how language affects reasoning when someone says they've been to yale in comparison to a community college. What knowledge claims can come from this and how can I develop it?

i'm very late to this, and it probably won't be much help to your PPD given you posted this a week ago, but just in case... the study Loftus and Palmer (1974) might be of interest to you! we learnt about it in our IB psych class, and it noted a difference in the evaluation of the speed of cars before a collision, depending on the words used in the question (hit/smashed/etc.) sorry if this isn't much help to you hope it all went well!!
