Profile Summary

My research focuses broadly on the study of language and culture in Scotland and England, and forms three main (though often intertwined) strands:

1) My PhD examined place-names in the South of Scotland and was chiefly historical and etymological, but since then I have become increasingly interested in the study of place-names and society, or socio-toponymy, and the significance of place and place naming in relation to local identity.  

2) As a former professional Lexicographer for Scottish Language Dictionaries, The Oxford English Dictionary and the Historical Thesaurus of English, I continue to pursue lexicographical research and am currently involved with a project which aims to assess the importance of Charles Relly Beard's unpublished Dictionary of Costume and Armour.

3) I also research various aspects of the Scots Language, and am particularly interested in the ways that Scots and other often-marginalised varieties of language are represented and perceived. To date I have published on topics including Scottish Slang, Scots place-names and Scottish Dictionaries.
