Sociolinguistics Research Group


A picture of QMUL linguists who work on sociolinguistics 

The research of the Sociolinguistics Research Group has focussed on how language is embedded in the social context of its use. This includes an interest in the ways in which language varies across time, across different social groups and in different social contexts. We have developed a cross-methodological approach, recruiting quantitative, qualitative and experimental methods to understanding how language use interfaces with social structure and individual subjectivity. 

 This group includes:

Academic Staff Postdocs and Visitors PhD Students
  • Jenny Cheshire
  • Colleen Cotter
  • Esther de Leeuw 
  • Erez Levon
  • Agnieszka Lyons
  • Devyani Sharma
  • Kathleen McCarthy
