Accentuate the Positive: Accents and Dialects

A celebration of accents and dialects


This event is fully booked
 

Accents and Dialects can say a lot about us – where we live, where we’re from, our background, even who we choose to identify with. Linguists know about the challenges of accents and dialects in the languages they learn and work with. There’s a fascinating variety between accents across the UK, while some surprising dialectal variations survive even to this day despite the standardising influences of mass media. Join us for a fast-paced celebration of accents and dialects. Gain insights about the differences between them and the meanings we attach to them. Share your own experiences of the joys (and occasional pitfalls) when navigating the boundaries of accents and dialects.

Attendees will receive an email from the Midlands Network with a Zoom link nearer the time.
