Lessons from the Language of “Living with COVID-19”

Elizabeth Stokoe, Professor of Social Interaction, Loughborough University

Lessons from the Language of “Living with COVID-19”

On the first of April, Malaysia will begin its “transition into endemicity” as we continue to reopen safely and figure out what it means for us to live with COVID-19. But what do we mean when we say “live with COVID-19”? Is that a phrase that has been overused in the past few months, when the pandemic is not yet over? We speak with Elizabeth Stokoe, a professor of social interaction at Loughborough University to get her thoughts on how the language of “living with COVID” affects our behaviour and whether it matters who says it.
