About

Hello! I’m Hannah Booth, a third-year PhD student in linguistics at the University of Manchester. I hold previous degrees from the University of Cambridge and the University of Aberdeen.

I am a historical linguist, and my current research focuses on syntactic change in Icelandic.estonia-forest

Other interests of mine include diachronic corpora as a means to investigate language change, as well as historical Germanic morphosyntax more widely (especially German and Norwegian).

I’m originally from Northumberland, a beautiful part of the world…
