Acculturation, Brand Personality and Brand Preferences

The present research examines the relationship between acculturation, brand personality and brand preferences,in the context of bilingual advertising. It is hypothesized that biculturals will not demonstrate a strong affinity to any particular brand.We further test how bilingual advertising would enhance biculturals' brand preferences, and how brand personality moderates this relationship.
