Biografi

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

My main research interests include variation in the English language, present and past, corpus linguistics, historical pragmatics and early manuscript studies. I specialise in the Early Modern English period and have done research on the English language used in Britain and in the early North-American colonies. Among my more recent interests are spoken interaction in the past and developments in nineteenth-century English. With Peter Grund and Terry Walker, I am currently working on an electronic text edition of Early Modern depositions. Most of my research is done within the corpus linguistics framework: I am curious to learn how people used language in the past and today, and what factors seem to have influenced language change.
