Western Isles residents wanted for study

A PhD student from Lancaster is looking for residents of the Western Isles who are willing to give an hour or so of their time to talk about the use of language. Α project is being run across the UK and Ireland about the difference between how older and younger people speak and how they feel about it.

If you are interested to participate, or know people who want to take part, please leave a brief note in comments. I'll relay the email address (which will show up in the comment notification) to the academic concerned, and you can then make arrangements direct. Confidentiality will be upheld by this blogger, and for anyone participating in the study.

Please relay.
Thank you.


  1. Arnish, you can count me in, depending upon whether they wish to speak or email - I have a particular interest in language in this way, having once researched occurrences of sexism inherent in language - though it irks me to admit it, I guess I'd be counted amongst the 'older' class :- ) Linda.

    If more participants are required, I could possibly drag myself away from a busy day of running the estate.
