Formerly at Lancaster University

Research overview

I work on the Encyclopaedia of Shakespeare’s Language project (AHRC project AH/N002415/1), which brings corpus linguistics to Shakespearean studies. My research interests include the language of Shakespeare's soliloquies, the stylistics of drama, (im)politeness theory, and corpus linguistics.

I have worked in ELT for over 30 years, mainly in Spain, but also in the UK, France and Egypt. My main interests lie in the teaching of language and literature in initial teacher training, and teaching English for academic purposes.
