Event Details

We are offering a free, one day, English Language Workshop for Year 10 to 13 students and their teachers with a focus on variation in language.

  • Do women and men speak differently?
  • Is there such a thing as “gay voice”?
  • How can you tell a Brummie apart from a Geordie?
  • Can you figure out where and when someone is from based on their accent or dialect?
  • What are the (dis)similarities between British English and the Englishes spoken on other continents?
  • How “normal” a language is English anyway, when you consider the thousands of languages in the world at large?

All these questions and many more are addressed in the field of language variation and we will answer as many of them as we can at our free, one-day workshop.

You and your students will be introduced to the latest advances in English Language studies in general and linguistic variation research in particular.

If you are interested in attending, please contact linguistics@lancaster.ac.uk now and we will keep you updated. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch.
