About the Author

Jane Stuart-Smith is a Lecturer in English Language at the University of Glasgow.

After an initial training in Comparative Philology and General Linguistics at Oxford University, she spent a year working with Panjabi-English bilinguals in Birmingham before moving to Glasgow where she is carrying out the first major sociophonetic investigation of Glaswegian speech since the early 1970s.
