Two of our most recent graduates, Angie Owen and Laura Blakeley, each gave presentations this week at the UK Language Variation and Change (UKLVC) conference in Newcastle. Angie gave a talk with Kevin Watson about phonological change in the Wigan vowel system, which built on her dissertation research, and Laura gave a talk with Eivind Torgersen about the results of their study into language and ethnicity in Blackburn, a project which was funded by Lancaster's Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences last summer.
Well done to them!
