Personal profile

Biography

 

Prior to moving into academia, I worked as an EFL and EAP teacher in Russia, China, the UK and Turkey, where I became increasingly interested in Corpus Linguistics, eventually moving to the University of Birmingham to complete my PhD, ‘Modality and the V wh’ pattern. I have been working at Coventry for over 7 years. I teach both undergraduate and postgraduate modules on corpus linguistics and discourse analysis. I also co-supervise three PhD students who are working in the area of Corpus Linguistics approaches to student EAP genres.

My main research investigates applications of and approaches to Corpus Linguistics.  

Research - current projects:

  • Nadsat in translation: this project investigates the use and translation of Nadsat in Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange. Project members include Jim Clarke, Niall Curry and Patrick Corness at Coventry University. The project site is here
  • BAWE Quicklinks: I am working with Hilary Nesi and Daniel Quinn on developing hyperlinks which can help those providing feedback to students in HE to guide them to more appropriate usage - see the project website here
  • Communicating Covid: this project is looking at the discourse of covid, for example in the Downing Street briefings. At Coventry project members are Sheena Gardner and David Beauchamp; we have recently started a collaboration with Kate Power and Peter Crosthwaite of the University of Queensland. The project website is here.
