Personal profile


At Huddersfield I am Professor of English Language and Linguistics. I am also a Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Foreign Languages at Fuzhou University, China. I work mainly in the areas of stylistics, corpus linguistics and the history of the English language, and I am particularly interested in applications for linguistics.

I studied for my BA, MA and PhD degrees in linguistics at Lancaster University and before I did my PhD I taught English as a foreign language in northern Italy.

I am Editor of the SAGE journal Language and Literature. With my colleague Louise Nuttall I edit the book series Advances in Stylistics for Bloomsbury, and with Lesley Jeffries I co-edit Perspectives on the English Language for Palgrave. I am also co-editor of Babel: The Language Magazine.
