Research overview

My PhD project is on (im)politeness metalanguage in a corpus of Shakespeare’s plays.

I'm largely interested in how people talk about or evaluate (their own or others') language use. I'm also interested in how/why language changes, and what effects different language choices might have. These interests tend to come under (meta)pragmatics, historical linguistics, stylistics, and the use of corpora in all these areas.
