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||Research Students|
- We hold a fortnightly Sociolinguistics reading group. Announcements about this group can be obtatined by subscribing to the linguistics research mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org at QMULs listserver.
