Research overview

My research investigates sociophonetic variation using acoustic and articulatory methods (particularly ultrasound tongue imaging). Most of my work to date has focused on multiethnic communities and language contact varieties. Please see my personal webpage for more information www.samkirkham.com

PhD supervision

I am happy to supervise students who would like to do interesting research in sociophonetics or phonetics. Lancaster has a well-equipped Phonetics Lab with facilities for acoustic analysis, speech perception, and articulatory measurement (including electromagnetic articulography, ultrasound, electropalatography, aerodynamics), which is available for use by postgraduate students in this research area.

Current Teaching

  • LING102 English Language
  • LING223 English Phonetics
  • LING327 Advanced English Phonetics
  • LING416 Sociophonetics
