Language Variation and Change Research Group brings together researchers in the areas of sociolinguistics, language variation, and language change at Lancaster University.

We host regular reading groups and invited talks in the above areas, which are open to all members of staff and students at Lancaster.

LVCRG is based in the Department of Linguistics and English Language at Lancaster University. We also have links to Lancaster University Phonetics Lab, which is a dedicated facility for acoustic, articulatory and perceptual phonetic analysis.
