I am a linguist based at Middlesex University in London. I find questions about language and meaning endlessly fascinating and I'm convinced that everyone else does too.
I write, teach and research on a broad range of language and linguistics-related topics, but my main interests are all connected in some way with linguistic meaning (linguistic semantics and pragmatics). I have a particular interest in how meanings are created and negotiated in specific contexts. I'm currently carrying out research on the nature of prosodic meaning, visual/multimodal meaning, and the inferential processes involved in producing, interpreting and evaluating texts.
