Linguistics is the scientific study of language. Dr. Christopher Strelluf of the University of Warwick uses the treasure trove of old sound recordings in the Coventry Archives to show what English in Coventry was like for people born in the community in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

This includes words, sounds, and grammatical features that make the “Coventry Accent” unique, and provide a foundation for English spoken in Coventry today. En route to describing English in Coventry, Dr. Strelluf will introduce methods and principles of linguistic analysis, revealing some of the ways linguists study language to reveal its fascinating complexities.
