My profile in Lund University research portal

My research concerns the dynamics of meaning-making in human communication and is situated within the framework of Cognitive Linguistics. Central to this approach is the meaningful functioning of language in all its guises and all its uses in discourse. I use different empirical methods – corpus and computational techniques as well as experimental techniques of different kind to contribute to a better understanding of what linguistic expressions reveal about human interaction, perception and cognition and inversely how they influence and give rise to patterns and structures in natural language use.
