S2E7: Language, dialect & identity
How much does a language constitute one’s identity? Are you a different person when you speak a different language, or even a different dialect? If you speak multiple languages and dialects, which one is really you?
In this episode I talk to Katie Resch, a PhD student at the University of Vienna. We talk about being bilingual, identifying with “Austrianness”, and the question of feeling and sounding fake when speaking in different dialects.
