Dr Ianto Gruffydd
Research Officer in Linguistics (Welsh)
I am a research officer working as part of the Language Attitudes Research Team. Our research aims to better understand the relationship between speaker attitudes and language use across different speech communities by using explicit and implicit methods.
I am also interested in language policy and maintenance, a field directly related to language attitudes and usage. Specifically, I have examined the language use of children, newcomers and businesses across several communities in North Wales.
My doctoral research was in the field of language variation and change, specifically examining the sociophonetics of Cardiff Welsh. More recently I have worked on different varieties of South Wales English in towns outside of Cardiff.
