Dr Daniel Johnson

Formerly at Lancaster University

Daniel Johnson

Career Details

I received my B.A. in 1998 from Yale University, and my Ph.D. in 2007 from the University of Pennsylvania, where I worked under the direction of William Labov. In 2012 I started work as a Lecturer at Lancaster.

I created and maintain the Rbrul program for quantitative analysis of linguistic data and I am happy to answer questions about it, or other statistical questions.

Current Research

I am currently engaged in several research collaborations. A project with Bill Haddican (Queens College, CUNY) investigates the English particle verb alternation from a variationist and syntactic point of view. Jennifer Nycz (Georgetown) and I are working on the development of phonological contrasts (reversals of merger), both over the lifespan and in experiments.

I carry out "miniature studies" on my blog, dejonedge.blogspot.com.
My website is www.danielezrajohnson.com.
