Professor Richard Hudson

Emeritus Professor of Linguistics



Research Interests

His main area of research is Word Grammar, which embraces all of language (syntax, morphology, semantics and maybe even phonology) and integrates it with general cognition. It has implications for theories of social variation, the psychology of language processing, acquisition (i.e. learning) and even language teaching. He is interested in developing all these areas of theory, but even more interested in applying the theory to description. He also has a strong non-research interest in disseminating linguistics through the schools.
