    Personal profile

    Research interests

    English historical linguistics

    Most of my research to date has been within the field of English historical linguistics. It has utilized sociolinguistic, pragmatic, philological and corpus-based approaches. 

    Digital language practices

    I recently investigated digital language practices from a transhistorical perspective and with Dr Uschi Maden-Weinberger developed the Transhistorical Corpus of Written English. I am particularly interested in digital orality. 

    Forensic linguistics

    I am interested in forensic linguistics, especially where it might intersect with historical linguistics, for instance in relation to authorship analysis or the origins and effects of legal language.
