We are very much looking forward to our next Institute of Humanities Research Seminar, which will be delivered on Wednesday 21st November by Professor Jennifer Smith, from the University of Glasgow.

Her talk title is:

Where does the Glottal Stop Start? Community, Caregiver and Child in the Rapid Rise of an Iconic British Variable.

Jennifer is a world-leading researcher in sociolinguistics and on language variation and change. Her projects include very significant work on dialects of Scotland and also on the their relationship to colonial varieties of North America. She also leads the AHRC-funded Scots Syntax Atlas project.

This is sure to be a fascinating talk. It takes place at 4pm in room 121 of the Lipman Building. All welcome.

There is a campus map and directions to the campus here:
