New Speakers Research Links

Gordon Wells, Island Voices co-ordinator, has been attending the first round of Working Group Meetings of the “New Speakers” network at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh on 6-7 March. The “New Speakers” network is an EU-funded initiative (COST Action IS1306) aimed at fostering collaboration amongst researchers, facilitating the sharing of findings, and identifying key issues in research on multilingualism. The term “new speakers” refers to multilingual individuals and groups who adopt and use a language variety different from their native language.  Gordon’s Powerpoint presentation introducing the Island Voices project and associated research interests can be viewed here.
