Language of Voice Hearing


Research at the UCL Centre for Applied Linguistics


What next?

By Zsofia Demjen, on 29 September 2017

So, after the advisory symposium, what’s next for LangVH?

As I mentioned in the last post, we are currently working on publishing our findings. On the basis of discussions with our advisors, we’ve decided to start with the following:

  1. A paper for a voice-hearing expert audiences on metaphors for the relationships with and phenomenology of voices. We aim to showcase metaphor analysis as a useful tool and will reflect on the practical implications and possible applications of our findings.
  2. A chapter providing an overview of our approach for an edited collection on linguistic approaches to healthcare. This will be aimed at a mixed linguistics & healthcare audience, and focus on patterns of interactional behaviour and transitivity.
  3. We are also working on a proposal for a new project to explore the experience of psychosis via linguistic analysis and novel data collections methods.

We may be quiet for a little while, but watch this space.
