An understanding of linguistic heterogeneity in older speakers is crucial for the study of language variation and change. To date, intra-speaker malleability in older populations remains under-researched, in varieties of English and more generally. This paper contributes panel data to the… read more
Buchstaller, Isabelle 2020 (h) in Marshallese EnglishVariation in the Pacific: Part I, Kashima, Eri and Miriam Meyerhoff (eds.), pp. 222–249 | Article
