I am a doctoral candidate of English linguistics at Lund University.
My research is couched in the general framework of Cognitive-Functional Linguistics and focuses on the dynamic co-construction of meaning in spoken dialogue. It argues for a broad conception of constructions (i.e. form-meaning pairings that make up language), specifically those expressing stance, where constructions are seen as encoding pragmatic, dialogic and sociocultural information. My data come primarily from the London-Lund Corpora, two corpora of spoken British English from different time periods of Present-Day English. On the one hand, the corpora are used as a synchronic resource to describe and define the constructional properties of various stance constructions; on the other hand, the corpora are used to track the development of the constructions over the last half century.
