I'm E. I'm an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, investigating non-canonical questions and the syntax/pragmatics interface using data from Scots varieties.
My research is broadly in dialect syntax, generative grammar and its interfaces. I am interested in documenting the rich morphosyntactic microvariation found in contemporary Scots and English varieties in order to address broader questions about how language works and how it changes.
I have worked on verb raising, agreement, demonstratives, negation and imperatives as well as non-canonical questions. I'm additionally interested in developing new methodologies for tapping into dialect syntax resources.
