Here are the show notes for Episode 56, in which Raj and Dan talk to Dr Danielle Turton, Senior Lecturer in Sociolinguistics at Lancaster University and Principal Investigator for a Leverhulme funded project on Lancashire rhoticity. We talk about:

  • Dialect levelling and why it’s a complicated picture

  • Why researching UK dialects is so interesting

  • What’s happening to rhoticity in the North West (and beyond)

  • Media discourses around dialect change
