Heritage Dialects

This new section on MEDEA is an opportunity to hear ‘fusion accents’, where the speaker/s may have a familial or heritage language or accent of English from another continent that has meshed with their own manner of speech influenced by growing up in a very different locale. The phrase ‘global citizen’ is truly reflected in these conversations that both interrogate- and celebrate- our diverse world. 

Listen to i-DARE (Identity: Dialects, Accents, Race explored) – six podcasts released on World Diversity Day 2021 featuring RCS students in conversation about their voices.
