In this episode, we discuss Vernacular Third Person, a mode of fiction story-telling where the third person narrator speaks in vernacular. We discuss how Vernacular Third Person challenges ideologies about authority in written discourses. Who really gets to speak in written genres and how?
But this question isn’t just limited to fiction. Can academic discourses be more inclusive? Can they be more accessible?
Linguists Karissa Wojcik, Ari Janoff, M.K. Hedrick, and Caroline Myrick join me in the lab to talk about how academia can benefit from questioning its own assumptions about language.
