 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I am a (socio)historical linguist with a special interest in diachronic and synchronic aspects of language variation and
change. My current research focuses on (a) alternative histories of the English language, i.e. the role of historical
urban vernaculars in standardisation processes; the language of the labouring poor in Late Modern England; and (b)
the historical development of English subjunctive constructions.

I have a keen interest in interdisciplinary research, particularly the correlation between language variation and
change and socio-economic history, as well as textual history. A special interest is how the past informs the future.
To date, I have carried out research in several related fields, notably philology, corpus compilation and corpus
linguistics, stylistics, dialectology, (socio-)historical linguistics, the interface between manuscript and print, and
language standardisation.
