Minna Nevala, Minna Palander-Collin and Anni Sairio participated in the ICAME 34 conference in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, in May. Or, Anni was not physically there, but we all contributed to the poster on “LINGUISTIC CHANGE in its social contexts in eighteenth-century English”. The link to the poster is here:
This poster reports on ongoing research with other VARIENG researchers, or a subsection of them, i.e. the C18 team. In the C18 project we map specific linguistic changes in the correlational sociolinguistic framework including Minna Nevala on you vs. thou, Anni Sairio on the progressive, and Minna Palander-Collin on its vs. of it.
