Come and see an ultrasound image of your tongue while you speak! This 15-minute activity is all about accent and dialect in Burnley. Discover how the tongue’s eight muscles allow us to speak. If you wish, take part in a research project about accent in Lancashire by reading a few words and making an ultrasound recording. Let us know what you think about local accents! If you like, we can send you a video of your tongue after the activity.

Our event is suitable for anyone aged 6+, though younger children are very welcome to watch and listen. It involves placing an ultrasound probe under the chin, and may not be suitable for someone who doesn't like something touching their chin. Anyone who doesn't want to be recorded is welcome to watch.
