This course explores the sociolinguistic study of language variation and change. We examine how language varies both between individuals (e.g. accents) and within individuals (e.g. style). You will also learn transferable research skills. Students will record a sociolinguistic interview and analyse it to uncover hidden linguistic patterns.
