15th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS-15)
This presentation focuses on our understanding of the relationship between patterns of variation in speech and the social dimensions characterising individual speakers and their speech communities. Particular emphasis is placed on highlighting the centrality of 'sociophonetic' questions to phonetic theory more generally.
