Just back from giving the keynote talk (Change and Variation in Canadian Expats) at Change and Variation in Canada 10 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where I had an excellent time discussing the Canadian Shift and other vowelly matters with fellow attendees!
My Fall Sociolinguistic Variation course (a diverse bunch of undergraduates, Masters students, and doctoral students) contributed posts to a class blog for one of their assignments. There are some real gems in there (in terms of sociolinguistic observation and analysis, but also writing) - check it out!
Last Thursday I gave two talks at University of Toronto: a Canada Research Chair-sponsored talk to the Linguistics Department ("Accents on the Move: What Mobile Canadians Reveal About Phonological Variation and Change") as well as a guest lecture in Sali Tagliamonte's graduate seminar on Stylistic Variation. The U of T linguists were a great audience in both cases!
