Stuff on linguistics and lots of other things



Like a lot of people doing research in English in Spain, I have inevitably been drawn towards the contrastive study of both English and Spanish. I have carried out research into the acquisition of English phonology by Spanish Learners, contrastive politeness studies, and translation. My recent research has focused on voice-quality in English and Spanish television commercials. This line of research covers gender, identity, and stereotypes. I have also looked at the grammaticalization processes which led to Present Day discourse markers. This is my ORCID page
