Profile

Biography

I have been working in corpus linguistics since 2001. I came to linguistics via English language teaching (1984-1993) and language teacher education (1992-2001). 

My current research focuses on corpus linguistics, lexicogrammar, and (critical) discourse studies. I have also published on language teaching methodology, language teacher education, and the connection between linguistics and TESOL. E-copies of my publications and presentations are available via Research Gate and Academia.edu. [For details, see ‘Research Interests’ below.]

I currently teach modules on research methodology, English lexicogrammar, and (critical) discourse studies. I also supervise postgraduate research students employing corpus-based approaches to theoretical lexicogrammar and critical discourse analysis. [For details, see ‘Teaching’ below.]

Research Interests

Research focus

My research focuses on the following areas:

Corpus Linguistics methodology

  • Query constrruction for the compilation of topic-specific corpora.
  • Analytical techniques and metrics (consistent collocates, keyness analysis, manual annotation),

Theoretical Lexicogrammar

  • Conditionals
  • Modality and modal markers
  • Tense and aspect
  • Compatibility between construction grammar and lexical grammar

Pedagogical Lexicogrammar

  • Learner language (particularly the use of conditionals, modality, tense and aspect)
  • Comparisons between L2 and L1 use. and the information in pedagogical materials

Discourse-Oriented Corpus Studies

  • Presentation of social actors in the media
  • Foci: immigration and asylum, religion, autism
