I have performed and published corpus-based studies on the use of will, 'll, shall, going to and gonna in a variety of corpora, examining variation with type of text, type of speaker, time and other linguistic and non-linguistic factors. I've also been involved in collaborative reseach on the semantic properties of going to.
In addition to work on theroetical aspects of corpus compilation and use, I have worked on a range of corpus compilation and development projects, such as the Uppsala Student English corpus, Uppsala Press Corpus, British National Corpus, BNC Baby, SACODEYL project.
