My DPhil thesis examines the sociolinguistic, dialectal, and discourse-pragmatic influences on the distribution, grammaticalisation, and obsolescence of units of minimal value in Old Gallo-Romance dialectal negation during the Middle Ages in France. As both a quantitative and qualitative study, it aims to explain the structured variation we find for these variables across texts of diverse origin, typology, and genre. 

I have taught Papers IV (History of the French Language), V (French linguistics), and VIII (General Linguistics) to students reading for degrees in French and linguistics.
