This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. How we use language – our accent, expressions, and the structure of our sentences – changes from region to region. Vera Regan explains why we should listen to these differences, and why language can act as a cultural barometer.
Sociolinguist Vera Regan is a researcher at University College Dublin, and her work explores the relationship between our cultural landscape and our changing language.
