PHD RESEARCHER IN SOCIOLINGUISTICS

foto (2)_edited.jpg

I'm a second-year PhD student at KU Leuven (QLVL research group).

In my PhD, I focus on the acquisition of socially-meaningful contact-induced linguistic variation, combining insights from developmental sociolinguistics and contact linguistics, to get a better understanding of how the social meaning of English lexical resources develops in Belgian Dutch preadolescents.
