Roqe Ep#272 - Does Having an Accent Make Life Harder? - Dr. Jila Ghomeshi, Roqe Roundup
A dynamic new edition of Roqe focused on language, and the particular proposition: “Does having an accent make life harder?” Jian is joined by professor, author and President of the Linguistics Association of Canada, Dr. Jila Ghomeshi, for a vibrant conversation about accents (with some sibling teasing interlaced!). Jila, with over two decades of experience in the field of Iranian linguistics, discusses how the way we speak can affect the way we are seen, plus the intricacies of accents, the complexities of language, and the effects both can have on personal and professional lives. Plus, Pegah and Jian read through some of the many comments on this topic from the Roqe audience, and discuss the latest news from inside and outside Iran.
