UKLVC12 – QMUL- London

The first week of teaching seems to have flown past – to the point where my trip to London for UKLVC12 seems like a distant memory, but I’ll have a go at trying to sum it up…

I was fortunate enough to have my poster accepted for presentation on the first day of the conference and I found this to be such an encouraging and supportive experience. The poster had lots of interest throughout the day and it was great to have the opportunity to speak to so many people about my work and get some fresh perspectives on my findings.

There were so many interesting presentations over the course of the three days. I was especially interested in the methodological innovation coming out of Sheffield and York regarding real-time listener perception tools and online mapping interfaces – both of which have the potential to be big game-changers in the way we gather perceptions of language variation. Something to watch out for, for sure.
