Research Interests

Language corpora; word frequency distributions; how these vary across language varieties, and how they relate to syntactic and lexical hypotheses; corpus interfaces; automatic and semi-automatic lexical acquisition from corpora; using the web as a corpus.

The lexicon; its structure; lexical resources, including published dictionaries; how lexicographers write dictionaries, how they determine what meanings a word has, and how this relates to theoretical discussions of ambiguity and computational work on word sense disambiguation.

Relations between lexicons and corpora.


Outside Interests

Walking, preferably up and down mountains. Reading novels. Sunday morning football with the ten-year-olds.
