Chair in Corpus Linguistics
Director, Centre for Corpus Research
Department of English Language and Applied Linguistics
As a corpus linguist, I am interested in language as a social phenomenon and the way in which we use language to understand and shape the world we live in. A large part of my research focuses on the language of Dickens’s fiction, literary linguistics, and discourse analysis.
I am currently PI on the AHRC funded CLiC Dickens project.
