Fersiwn Cymraeg

I am now retired but was a Reader in the School of Education and Lifelong Learning at Aberystwyth University, specialising in Linguistics.

My main research interests are in syntax, from both descriptive and theoretical standpoints. I work on Welsh, concentrating primarily but not exclusively on its acquisition and development by infants and young children. Anyone who is interested in the syntax of Welsh in general might like to look at the Welsh Syntax Seminars.

 

I am very fond of everyday vernacular Welsh, warts and all, and my research concentrates on its beautiful characteristics. But for a change, I have prepared guidelines (only in Welsh at present) for some aspects of the very formal style of written Welsh on the Web.

A list is also being built up of dialect syntax variables in Welsh.
