The Trees and Tweets project is once again in the news. This time the project features in this article in The Atlantic – Things that make you go “um”.

The article discusses how the linguists on the Trees and Tweets project team analysed Twitter data to learn about how both men and women, from different US regions, use words like “um” and “uh.”

You can find out more about the project at the Trees and Tweets Dialect Project Blog and other media interest in this analysis in this previous post.
