Language and Society
Talk, Year 12, VCE English Language
This talk uses clips featuring different Australian 'voices' (including standard, broad, migrant and Indigenous) to discuss the language features of each variety and the ways in which they are used in media texts to signal identity.
Changing attitudes towards varieties of Australian English will also be explored.
Presented in collaboration with Monash University linguist Dr Louisa Willoughby.
