My research

This section provides information on the research I am currently engaged in, as well as topics I have worked on in the past.

Most of my current research involves Philippine English and the Oxford English Dictionary, more information on which can be found in the subsections listed on the menu in the lefthand column.

The following is a list of other topics I am interested in. Please refer to the list of publications, talks and conference presentations in my CV to see the work I have done in these areas.

Do not hesitate to contact me for more information on my research. I love hearing from fellow linguists and anyone interested in languages, and I am always open to new ideas and collaboration.
