  • Tel:0097165053359
  • Specialization:PhD in Linguistics (syntax), University of Wales/Bangor, 1997.
  • Research Interests:My main research interests lie in the field of English and Arabic synchronic and diachronic syntax using the linguistic framework of generative grammar and its most recent offshoot (Minimalism). With respect to syntactic change, some topics that particularly interest me are grammaticalization, reanalysis, and the impact of internal factors on syntactic change (and language change in general). But having been heavily involved in teaching over the last 20 years, I also have developed an interest in vocabulary learning and teaching, learner autonomy, and teacher training.
