Research overview

My research involves sociolinguistics, phonetics, laboratory phonology. In particular, I focus on the Celtic languages, especially Scottish Gaelic. I consider the phonetic and social implications of bilingualism and have extensively investigated the context of minority langauge revitalisation in Scotland. Other research interests include rising intonation in Glasgow Gaelic and Liverpool English, as well as ultrasound tongue imaging. My ultrasound research so far has considered tongue root contrasts in Twi and Ghanaian English, as well as palatalisation contrasts in Gaelic sonorants.

PhD supervision

I welcome PhD applications in sociophonetics, bilingualism, phonetics, minority languages, north-west Englishes, prosody and minority languages.
