Date: 18 March 2009

Researchers at Lancaster and Queen Mary, University of London are working on language change in London. They are particularly interested in the English spoken by teenagers and younger children and if there is an emerging new London dialect with features from varieties of English from outside the UK and even completely new phonological and grammar features.
