I am interested in syntax and semantics, and especially in apparent mismatches between the two. My DPhil thesis looks at idioms and other ‘multiword expressions’, and in particular their representation in the lexicon.
Beyond this, I also enjoy studying language-in-use, using a variety of corpus-based and discourse theoretic tools. Within this domain, I’m most interested in the interactions of language, gender, and sexuality.
