The Survey of English Usage
This newsletter is part of a series of quarterly newsletters from the Survey of English Usage, intended to keep the academic community and other interested parties informed about research in the Survey. The newsletter will be sent out in March, June, September and December. The March issue is the Survey’s Annual report.
We are very pleased to welcome two new members of staff to the Survey.
Daniel Clayton is a secondary school English teacher who has joined us on the Teaching English Grammar in Schools Project. Among other activities, Dan has written course books for Nelson Thornes and was a team leader and trainer for the AQA Examinations Board, and he has a blog on English grammar aimed at school teachers. He will work closely with Sean Wallis on this Knowledge Transfer Project, which starts in February.
Dr Jillian Bowie joins the Survey on the Changing Verb Phrase in Present-day English Project. Jill previously worked for Rodney Huddleston as a research assistant on the Cambridge Grammar of English. She will also take up her post in February.
Both the British component of the International Corpus of English (ICE-GB) and the Diachronic Corpus of Present-Day Spoken English (DCPSE) are now available on the UCL student and staff managed computer system.
During the Spring Term the following research seminars will take
place in Room 233 Foster Court.
All welcome! Drinks afterwards.
