Research

My research interests lie mainly in the areas of morphology, phonology, orthography and the lexicon. I have worked largely on the Germanic languages, but I have interests in language families that show apparently very different types of morphology such as the Semitic languages. Much of my work is computational, but with a firm emphasis on theoretical linguistic questions. Recent funded projects I have worked on have looked at the relationship between orthography, phonology and morphology in English, German, Dutch and Arabic. I am currently developing lexicons for Latin and Medieval Legal English on the ChartEx project (www.chartex.org).
