Personal profile


I am a linguist and specialist in English sociolingustics and English language, with specific research interests in pronunciation variation and change, dialectology, language attitudes and language ideology, accent stylisation, as well as the sociolinguistic status of English in Denmark. I have previously worked on a project concerned with the sociolinguistic consequences of internationalisation in Higher Education and the ways in which academics negotiate the internationalised university space. I presently teach English sociolinguistics and English linguistics, and supervise students on topics in these areas as well as more general linguistic and sociolinguistic topics. My research work is at the crossroads of the humanities and the social sciences, since I use largely social science methods to investigate the nature of human language variation and change. I have in the past taught English Academic Writing and composition, and I am interested in translation (especially of academic texts) to English from Danish, and editing Academic English.
