What is linguistics, and how might the study of language help us to understand Scilly’s unique past? The first podcast in this series explores whether there is such a thing as a Scillonian dialect. The second podcast explores whether or not there are specific features of language shared by islanders, and considers whether men and women use language in different ways from one another. Listen to these podcasts below.
