You may know Dr. Clive Forrester of English at University of Waterloo–he’s an expert in applied linguistics, with a specialization in forensic linguistics.

Which meant, when the Globe and Mail needed an expert on the ways in which patois has become part of Toronto, of course they interviewed Dr. Forrester.
