This is a part of the project ‘Languages of Informality’ run by David Henig (Kent) and Nicolette Makovicky (Oxford) which is comprised of an active research network, workshops and an online dictionary designed to generate a database of vernacular words, phrases, and turns of speech about informal activities. The aim of this project is to critically analyse the language(s) used by citizens, academics, and policy-makers to speak about networking and informal economic activities.
