One speaker, two dialects: bidialectalism across three generations in Scotland
I am the primary Research Assistant on Professor J Smith’s ESRC funded project One Speaker Two Dialects (ES/K000861/1). The project investigates bidialectalism in north-east Scotland. I lead the fieldwork in terms of data collection, data processing and data analysis (including statistical analysis). I am also jointly responsible for the output of the project with regards to presentations and publications. My analytical contribution to this project focuses on sociophonetics, particularly acoustic phonetics - read an example of this in our 2015 ICPhS paper on ongoing change in the DRESS vowel.
