Research Interests

I specialise in theoretical, comparative and historical syntax, with interface, acquisition and contact issues also being a focus of interest. To date, much of my research has centred on the clause structure of the Germanic languages, with the peculiar patterns of variation and change exhibited by Afrikaans forming the heart of my doctoral work, and various aspects of the diachrony of English and other Germanic languages having been a major research focus since the completion of that Ph.D. in 2003.
