Stephanie Lindemann

Stephanie Lindemann joined the Department of Applied Linguistics at GSU in 2001 after receiving her Ph.D. in linguistics at the University of Michigan in 2000. She is a sociolinguist whose research interests focus on the native speaker in native–non-native interaction. Her recent work has concentrated on native speaker language ideologies and folk beliefs about non-native English. Specifically, she is investigating how native US English speakers identify non-native varieties, both in terms of the features they associate with the varieties and in terms of what they perceive the varieties themselves to be. She has addressed this question from a range of perspectives, including analysis of quantitative data from laboratory experiments and qualitative data from open-ended interviews. She also has used conversation analysis to look at collaborative and non-collaborative strategies used by native speakers in interaction with non-native speakers. She has published in a number of journals including Language in Society, Journal of Sociolinguistics, International Journal of Applied Linguistics, and English for Specific Purposes.
