Jennifer Nycz is a researcher and teacher for the Department of Linguistics at Georgetown University.
I've always been interested in linguistics and semiotics. With many questions unresolved when we began the recording, Jennifer helped answer an array of questions related to accent variation, dialect acquisition, phonetics, sociolinguistics, general linguistics.
An ESL (English as a Second Language) person, I began learning basic English at age of 4 or 5. However, it wasn't until I was 17 (when I moved to the U.S.) that I started to speak English on a daily basis.
Whether English is your first or second language, we are certain that you will be fascinated by some of the linguistic discoveries in this episode. Perhaps you'll go as far as challenging yourself to learn more about English, or a new language! It's good for your brain. :)
