Biography

I have been a Lecturer in English Language at the University of Glasgow since 2009, and Senior Lecturer since 2012. From 2004-2008, I was Research Associate for the Scottish Corpus of Texts & Speech (SCOTS) and Corpus of Modern Scottish Writing (CMSW) projects, which created large online corpora of texts in Scottish English and varieties of Scots. Before moving to Glasgow, I was a Teaching Fellow in French at the University of St Andrews, where I also completed my PhD in French linguistics.

I am Director of the Scottish Corpora projects, and an Associate Director of the Historical Thesaurus of English.

I am currently an Associate Editor for LLC: The Journal of Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, and a Subject Editor (Linguistics) for Forum for Modern Language Studies.

 

Projects

Projects which I run or am associated with include:

Mapping Metaphor with the Historical Thesaurus

Scottish Corpus of Texts & Speech

Corpus of Modern Scottish Writing

 

 

Grants

Jan 2012-March 2015: Principal Investigator, Mapping Metaphor with the Historical Thesaurus (AHRC grant AH/I02266X/1)

Supervision

I currently supervise PhD and MPhil students in the areas of corpus linguistics, semantics, metaphor, lexicography and genre analysis. Please contact me if you would like to discuss a proposal for postgraduate study within my areas of specialism.  

Teaching

I teach on several Honours courses in the English Language subject area: Semantics, Grammars of English, Culture and English Language Teaching, and Literary and Linguistic Computing. I also teach the 'Meaning and Mind' and 'Children and Language' components of the Level 1 English Language course.
