Dr. Noel O Murchadha

Assistant Professor (Education)
ARTS BUILDING


I am a sociolinguist currently focusing on attidudes and ideologies around linguistic variation, on folk linguistics and on perceptual dialectology. My research focuses on teenagers' perceptions of linguistic variation in contemporary spoken Irish and on the standardisation of Modern Irish. I am particularly interested in the changing relationship between self and society in the late modern age and in the impact such changes have on language variation and change in a minoritised language context. Within this paradigm, I have investigated the role of subjective, social-psychological factors in language variation and change in Irish.
