Our principal areas of research expertise include:
Corpus Linguistics - our work here incorporates interests in linguistic theory and language description, including descriptive translation and contrastive studies, phraseology and the lexisgrammar interface, and in the application of corpus investigation techniques to areas such as translation, lexicography and diachronic language study. Corpus techniques also underpin much of our work in discourse studies and in language learning and teaching.
Discourse Studies - we focus on themes such as narrative analysis, critical discourse analysis, translation studies and social theory, and on topics such as literary stylistics, workplace discourse, academic discourse, evaluation, and multi-modal discourse. In turn, much of our work on Language Learning and Teaching incorporates corpus approaches to phraseology, lexis and grammar, and discourse approaches to academic literacies.
We also focus on innovation in education, learning strategies and the acquisition of metaphor in the context of English as a global language.
