5. Nisei Style: Vowel Dynamism in a Second-Generation Japanese American Community
annette d’onofrio is assistant professor of linguistics at Northwestern University. She received her Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2016. Her research explores the ways that linguistic styles are used for processes of social meaning-making in both production and perception, with a particular focus on sociolinguistic cognition, personae, regionalized language features, and raciolinguistics. She has conducted sociolinguistic fieldwork across inland California, through Stanford’s Voices of California Project, as well as in Chicago, as the founder and co–principal investigator of the Chicagoland Language Project. She has published in venues including Journal of Sociolinguistics, Language in Society, and Language Variation and Change. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
janneke van hofwegen holds a Ph.D. in linguistics from Stanford University. Her research has focused on ethnic and world varieties of English. As a member of the Voices of California research team at Stanford, she documented and analyzed sociophonetic variation in the as-yet understudied California inland (nonurban) dialect region, with particular attention paid to minority ethnic and LGBT communities. As an associate on the North Carolina Language and Life Project (NCLLP), she studied morphosyntactic variation in African American English from a unique longitudinal sample of African American children, as well as sociophonetic variation in both African American and Chicano Englishes.
