I am especially interested in the relationship between children and language variation - both their acquisition of systemic variability, and their role in the propagation of change. My work combines real and apparent time approaches to track young speakers’ developmental shifts which I examine within the context of ongoing community trends. My work also investigates the relationship between language and gender. Again, from a developmental perspective looking at the emergence of gendered patterns of variation between childhood and adolescence. I am also interested in the use of gendered speech patterns in adult language and how these develop into recognisable styles of speech or personae.Teaching English in Use (UG) Sex, Gender, and Language (UG/PG) Sociolinguistic Theory (PG) Research Methods in Sociolinguistics (PG) ResearchResearch Interests: Language variation and change Sociophonetics Child language Gender (particularly development of gendered language) Stance and style Bidialectalism PublicationsBrowse a publication list by Dr Sophie Holmes-Elliott.
