Research overview

My research investigates sociophonetic variation using acoustic and articulatory methods. The majority of my work focuses on phonetic variation in language contact varieties. Please see my personal website and the Lancaster University Phonetics Lab website for more information.

PhD supervision

I am happy to supervise students who would like to do interesting research in sociophonetics, phonetics and/or sociolinguistics, particularly in the areas covered by my current research interests (see www.samkirkham.com). 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

I teach on the following courses:

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