Computational linguistics and language engineering: particularly lexical
description (using the lexical description language DATR),
multilingual lexicons, computational phonology,
information extraction, text parsing and
My main area of interest is in the lexical representation of phonological information and questions of inheritance, information sharing and redundancy within and across languages. I am currently pursuing interests in the representation of phonological, morphological and orthographic information in the lexicon, focusing on the Arabic languages.
I am on the board of SIGMORPHON, the only European member, and co-organised the eleventh SIGMORPHON workshop with Jeffrey Heinz and Richard Wicentowski.
Member of ACL (including SIGMORPHON
and SIGGEN) and LAGB.
I have two daughters, Alice (19) and Hannah (14) who take up a lot of my free
time. I am also interested in football and cricket (as a spectator) and
Town (for my sins!). I also teach Linguistics and English Language at the University of Sussex.
