Mr John Williams
I am an English language teacher with a professional background in lexicography and corpus linguistics. During my career I have contributed to more than 30 published dictionaries and language reference works, including the COBUILD range, the Partridge Dictionary of Slang, and the Dante lexical database.
Currently I am a member of the Language of Citizen Science research group, exploring the lexical features of online discussion among citizen scientists. Our team is in the process of compiling a large corpus of online talk in citizen science.
