    Question I need a word

    I am translating a text into English and I couldn't pick the right meaning. I will try to explain the idea. Please tell me what it means in English.

    We are carrying out a project about xenophobia and we are looking for ways to change/destroy our prejudgments towards other nations.

    Here I need what collocates prejudgment with.

    Re: I need a word

    What you are asking is not clear. Are you asking whether the word to use is 'prejudgment'? Try 'prejudice/s'

    Are you asking what words (e.g. reduce/ameliorate) collate when talking about a change of attitudes, as with prejudices?
