Activities and Interests

My scholarly efforts have been devoted to analyzing the workings of language in literature, academic writing, and advice writing, always with a view toward literary, textual, and discourse theory. At present, I expend good bit of time developing new uses of on-line technology to support courses in English Syntax, World Englishes, and corpus based analysis of kinds of writing. These on-line corpora also support my current research project, which is to give more specificity and substance to our accounts of writing in the academic disciplines. I also have made and maintain "resource" sites for studying English language and sites supporting books in visual analysis. (See my personal website.)
