My research interests are associated with the study of collocation and other phraseological aspects of English. I am currently using corpus-based techniques to investigate the phraseological behaviours of high frequency nouns and verbs and looking at how these are represented in mainstream EFL coursebooks.
I also co-ordinate a knowledge transfer project developing games designed to help learners acquire some of the most frequent collocations. These will run on computers and smart phones.
