研究キーワード

Sociolinguistics / Teacher Development / Language Testing

研究分野

My research fields are Sociolinguistics and Teacher Development. / I have a long-standing interest in both of these areas of research. / Explorations into both fields are always evolving keeping up-to-date is imperative for teachers.

研究テーマ

The themes include, but are not limited to, how people use language to define themselves or to set themselves apart from others. How external factors such as social status, loss of face, etc. affect the way people use language.

コメント

The world of Sociolinguistics has always intrigued me. From descriptive studies of dialects, to investigations of language variation and change, to analyses of the roles that language or particular linguistic features play in the construction of individual or group identities, my interest in this aspect of Linguistics has never waned.
Teaching is as much a learning experience for the educator as it is for the student. With Teacher Development, it is important to go above and beyond the subject area knowledge, improve student outcomes, include new technology and help each other become better educators in this ever-evolving environment.
