Welcome to my page.

My name is Nate Young, and I am an adjunct lecturer in Linguistics at the Centre for Research on Bilingualism at Stockholm University. I just completed my Ph.D. in variationist sociolinguistics at Queen Mary, University of London.


My research focus is on linguistic variation in Stockholm, Sweden, across social categories such as class, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality. This includes interest in Stockholm's multiethnolect; the traditional working-class variety Ekensnack; as well as more mainstream and elite speech styles.
