Episode 2: What's in a Name?

On this episode of Linglab we talk to Caroline Myrick, a doctoral student and linguistic student at N.C. State about her work with Saban English, a variety of English spoken on the small Dutch island of Saba. We also discuss how her work ties into a larger debate that linguists have been having for decades, and how that debate is relevant to linguistic research and popular attitudes about language today. Professor and renowned linguist, Dr. Walt Wolfram, weighs in on this important conversation and offers some great insight into the nature of change in academic disciplines.
