A Warm Welcome to Dr Jeffries!

Ella Jeffries

Dr Ella Jeffries has recently joined the English Language team for the academic year 2016/17. Ella’s main research interest is sociolinguistics. She recently finished her PhD at the University of York, which investigated children’s perception of regional accent variation. This research incorporated approaches from different fields of linguistic research including language variation and change, sociophonetics, language acquisition and speech perception. Her ambitions for further work include researching both explicit and implicit social attitudes that children develop towards accent categories.
