My research field is sociolinguistics in a broad sense. I work with many different approaches and methods, quantitative as well as qualitative. At the moment my research includes the following:

  • Language change
  • Language ideology
  • Phonetic variation in Danish
  • Dialect and globalization
  • Linguistic commodification
  • Language and authenticity
  • Language, gender & sexuality
  • Dialect use on the island of Bornholm
  • Danish/English-speaking families

I supervise projects and thesis within sociolinguistics and related fields.



At the Faculty of Humanities my research is used as an example of the impact the humanities researchers have on society.
