  • Dr Mercedes Durham

    I work in sociolinguistics, the subfield of linguistics which examines language in society. Broadly speaking, sociolinguistics tries to establish how factors such as geographical origin, age, gender, social class affect the way people speak and how (and why) we judge different accents and dialects.
