Question Bias

May 2023

This paper spells out the different flavors of question bias (original, contextual, projected) and additionally characterizes the bias inference in terms of its direction, strength, and optionality. With an eye on these distinctions, we review three major approaches to question bias and suggest that this phenomenon is primarily a matter of answer salience, where different kinds of salience correspond to different flavors of bias.
