Biography

Jane began working at Huddersfield on a British Academy funded research project in 2012 and has since taken an active role in our research environment and teaching provision. Her research specialisms are in Contrastive Linguistics, Cognitive Stylistics and Translation Studies. With this background, she now contributes to the newly formed Linguistics and Modern Languages subject area as Senior Lecturer in Applied Linguistics. She is Assistant Editor of the popular language magazine Babel and Publicity Officer for the Poetics and Linguistics Association (PALA).

Her first published article was awarded the 2014 PALA prize for best article published in Sage’s Language and Literature journal by a newcomer to the field.

Research & Scholarship

Principally a Stylistician with cognitive leanings, Jane enjoys widening the boundaries of this discipline by examining Spanish and English language discourse and applying the tools of Stylistics to real world problems. To this end, she has adapted Text-world Theory for the analysis of Spanish and compared Spanish and English spoken narrative styles. Her research with Prof Dan McIntyre on the language of The Wire’s subtitles employed stylistic models of characterisation, and she has since supplemented this qualitative analysis with quantitative research using statistical software. She continues to work using stylistic models of characterisation, mind style and Text-world Theory on a variety of texts and languages.
