The Chicagoland Language Project

Welcome to the Chicagoland Language Project!

The Chicagoland Language Project is a Linguistics research project led by Dr. Sharese King at the University of Chicago and Dr. Annette D’Onofrio at Northwestern University.

The UChicago Team is researching the diversity of language and life on Chicago’s South side. We want to hear about Chicago in Chicagoans’ own words, learning their stories and perspectives, while also documenting the variation in speech styles across the city.

We are starting our project interviewing residents from the Bronzeville area (Douglas & Grand Boulevard) in the Summer of 2021. For Bronzeville residents interested in participating or learning more, fill out our form and we will reach out to you shortly!
