Dr Merryn Davies-Deacon

I’ve recently been awarded my PhD from Queen’s University, Belfast, on lexical variation in Breton and its relation to “new speaker” identity, as a member of the MEITS project.

More generally, my work is usually on Cornish and/or Breton from a sociolinguistic perspective, focusing specifically on ideology and language standardisation, languages in the media, identity, and lexical variation. Click here for a list of conference presentations I’ve given, with details of abstracts, slides, references, etc., or here for a list of publications. You can download my whole CV as a PDF here.

On this site I very occasionally blog about my research.

If you’d like to get in touch, please do so via email or Twitter. You can also follow me on academia.edu.
