Overview

I am a historical sociolinguist and have previously held lecturing and teaching posts at the Universities of Newcastle and Sheffield. My research involves topics such as language standardisation, linguistic norms and literacy, and I am interested in their relation to language variation and change. I am currently working on the Unlocking the Mary Hamilton Papers project. In addition to working on eighteenth-century texts, I also work on Old and Middle English manuscripts and their scribes.
