It's been a while, sorry! Most of the posts I used to add here seemed simpler to do as tweets, linking to news stories, but I might start blogging more regularly again as Twitter seems to be taking a turn for the worse.
Anyway, here's a load of stories and links connected to a recent report from The Sutton Trust and using research by Accent Bias Britain into... well, accent bias, as you might expect. The Sutton Trust tweeted about it here as well.
A Guardian comment piece on it
I might come back to the comments and replies another time and we'll probably address some of this in a future episode of Lexis.
Nice YouTube explainer here from Devyani Sharma too.
And an unconnected accent piece from a day or two back: James Bond
