The Chicagoland Language Project


Listen to South Side residents talk about life and language in Chicago 

Do I need to still currently live on the South Side in order to do the interview?
No. If you grew up in the area or nearby we would still be interested in speaking with you about your experiences.
Can I bring a friend or family member to the interview?
It is okay to bring a guest to the interview, but we prefer to speak with people 1-on-1 as it is better for the audio recording.
Will anyone else hear my recording?
Yes, but your identity will be anonymized relative to the recording. Further, we can redact whatever you are uncomfortable with in the interview and with your consent, we may share excerpts on our site or in our research to showcase the amazing narratives you all have.
