Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


It is my pleasure to present the second issue of the second volume of Lifespans & Styles: Undergraduate Working Papers on Intraspeaker Variation. This issue includes six papers from nine authors. The first three papers are by former undergraduate students of Dr Laurel MacKenzie’s class, Language Change Across the Lifespan, at the University of Manchester. The fourth and fifth papers come from former students of my class, Sociolinguistics, at the University of Edinburgh, and the sixth paper is based on a University of Edinburgh Honours dissertation. As in the two previous issues, Volume 2, Issue 2 offers a breadth of approaches to the study of within-speaker, or intraspeaker, variation.
