Biography:
Becky Childs is an Associate Professor of English and Associate Chair of the English department at Coastal Carolina University. She holds a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Georgia, a MA in English from North Carolina State University, and BA in English from the University of Florida. Her research takes an ethnographically informed approach to language change in phonetic and phonological systems of varieties of English (African American, Bahamian, Southern English, Appalachian English, and Newfoundland English). Her recent work has focused more closely on issues of identity, salience, and local language change in Newfoundland and Appalachian English. She is the co-editor of Data Collection in Sociolinguistics (Routledge, 2013) as well as a number of other articles and chapters on sociolinguistic variation.
