Welcome! I am a retired Linguistics researcher living in London and this is my personal homepage where you can find information and news about what I am currently working on, as well as links to blogs that I contribute to. You can also download my publications, and draft papers that are not yet published.
I am co-editor with Jorge Emilio Rosés Labrada and David Nathan of EL Publishing, an online platform that publishes quality peer-reviewed open access electronic journals, multimedia, and monographs on documentation, description, and support of endangered languages. We publish on the theory and practice of language documentation, language description, sociolinguistics, language policy, and language revitalisation. All publications are double-blind peer reviewed, and are free to download under a Creative Commons licence. Find out more here.
I am co-author with David Nathan of EL Blog, which provides a place for challenge and debate around topics having to do with endangered languages, and includes updates on our publications work and other activities. You can find out more about this and other blogs that I contribute to here.
EL Training was established by David Nathan and myself in 2014 to deliver high quality workshops (1-14 days) on the theory and practice of language documentation, language description, sociolinguistics, language policy, and language revitalisation. We emphasise practical skills and group-based hands-on project work. Our website has freely downloadable curriculum, reference, and teaching materials from several years of training courses, and is currently being updated.
