Benjamin A. Jones

Post-doctoral researcher studying Linguistics at Swansea University. I have an interest in the fields of dialectology, sociolinguistics, and historical linguistics. My research interests include the history of the Welsh English dialect and its representation in fictional texts.

My most recent publication is 'The Gower Glossary' (2018), a small dialect glossary that discusses and documents the historical Gower dialect.
