Dr Jenny Amos holds a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Essex, where she also completed both her BA Hons English Language and Linguistics, and MA Hons Sociolinguistics. Specialising in sociolinguistics and phonology, her research focuses on the modelling of language variation within theoretical linguistic frameworks. Over the years, Jenny has presented at a number of international conferences and much of her work is centered on the variation and historical development of dialects across East Anglia, building on work completed for her PhD thesis, which focused on the changes in Mersea Island English, Essex. She is currently working on a number of projects relating to the analysis and documentation of East Anglian speech, as well as projects which aim to promote linguistic studies to younger students and the general public.
