Research interests

My interests are in historical linguistics and literature, and the physical objects - such as manuscripts and early printed books - from which we draw our knowledge of earlier stages of the English language. I am especially interested in the language of 'good behaviour' in the middle ages, particularly as used in the many conduct books (for example the Distichs of Cato and the Stans Puer ad Mensam) which sought to dictate reams of rules to their audiences, and my PhD research was codicological, examining the manuscript sources of Benedict Burgh's Middle English translation of the Distichs. The SAMUELS project should dramatically enhance our ability to search for such concepts in historical 'big data' collections such as Early English Books Online (EEBO) and the Hansard corpus. My background in Latin as well as English Language has proved valuable to my understanding of medieval literature and linguistics.


Teaching

I teach the 'Introduction to Latin' elective course for the Bachelors Degree in Eduction (BEd) level 2, aiming to give students a grounding in the language as part of their teacher training. I tutor for the historical component of the English Language level 2 course and have tutored on level 1 courses for English Language, Latin, and Classical Civilization.
