The study, which has been approved by the UCL Ethics Committee, is investigating accent change in Irish immigrants in London.
The first part of the study will take place between November and January (dates are flexible) and will require participants to:
- Read a short list of words
- Read some sentences
- Read a short passage
The second part of the study will involve the same participants listening to a recorded speech sample and completing tasks based around this. This will take place in February – dates to be decided.
If you are interested in taking part, email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time, date and place for the recordings.
