I've always had an interest in the ways in which words can be used. With this in mind there was only really one choice when deciding my degree and I'm very proud of my first-class honours degree in English Language and Linguistics from York St John University. During my tenure at university I created a number of essays that I am particularly proud of which you can view below. The year the essay was written has been added for citation purposes.

Multilingualism in Education: A Discussion (2013)
The Evolution of African American Vernacular English use in Hip-Hop Music (2014)
The above study was presented at the Undergraduate Linguistics Association of Britain annual conference which in 2014 was held in Edinburgh. The presentation used in this conference can be viewed below:
