Amanda Cardoso's research focusses on understanding the interaction between social factors and language variation.
She investigates varieties of English to understand how they change over time, and how they are perceived by others and the effects those perceptions can have for the speakers of the varieties. Her research also includes work on sociophonetic (phonological) variation in two indigenous languages - Tlingit and ʔayajuθəm. These projects seek to find better methods for understanding languages with a range of socio-cultural contexts and where there may be limited data.
