“A comparative study of ethnic variation and change in Australian English ”

Gan is undertaking a PhD on the Sydney Speaks project, examining ethnolectal variation in a set of features in Australian English, with a particular focus on Chinese-Australians. He uses quantitative methods to examine change in apparent and real time, comparing patterns observed in contemporary speech across age groups and with speakers recorded at an earlier time, both in Australia and in Hong Kong, using the ICE-HK corpus. He completed his MA in Linguistics at Xi’an Jiaotong University, China, in 2019, where he mainly focused on structural priming and interactive alignment in L2 English.
