    Personal 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). I joined Edge Hill University in September 2012; previously, I worked as associate lecturer and researcher at Lancaster University and Liverpool University.

    My current research  focuses on three interconnected areas: corpus linguistics methodology, theoretical and pedagogical lexicogrammar, and discourse studies. I have also published on language teaching methodology, language teacher education, and the connection between linguistics and TESOL.

    • Web of Science:   citations:   710    | h-index:   6

    E-copies of my publications and presentations are available via PureResearch Gate, and Academia.edu.

    I organise Corpus Approaches to Lexicogrammar (LxGr), a symposium held annually at Edge Hill University.

    I co-edit the Journal of Corpora and Discourse Studies.

    I also curate a bibliography of Discourse-Oriented Corpus Studies (DOCS), that is, studies using corpora and corpus techniques to examine meaning and style in discourse. 

    Research interests

    Research focus

    My research focuses on the following areas:

    • Corpus Linguistics: compilation of topic-specific corpora, analytical techniques, metrics.
    • Theoretical Lexicogrammar: modality and modal markers, conditionals, tense and aspect, compatibility between construction grammar and lexical grammar.
    • Pedagogical Lexicogrammar: learner language (particularly the use of conditionals, modality, tense and aspect), comparison of L2 use with L1 use and the information in pedagogical materials.
    • Discourse-Oriented Corpus Studies

    Recognition

    My publications often feature as required/suggested reading in undergraduate and postgraduate modules.  Also, the approach to keyness analysis proposed in Gabrielatos & Marchi (20112012) and Gabrielatos (2018) has been implemented in the following corpus tools:

    Teaching

    My teaching has focused on corpus linguistics, English lexicogrammar, semantics (particularly, modality and tense-aspect), pedagogical lexicogrammar, (critical) discourse analysis, and TESOL methodology.

    I lead the following modules:

    LNG3127. Corpus Linguistics
    LNG2133. Analysing Discourse
    LNG2138. Methodology
    LNG2128. Long Essay
    LNG1019. Language and Meaning

    I contribute to the following modules:

    HUM4000. Critical Approaches to Postgraduate Study in the Humanities & Social Sciences
    HUM4002. Research Philosophies and Methodologies
    LNG3148. Dissertation
    LNG3143. TESOL
    LNG2136. Modern English Structure and Use
