Gillian C Ramchand


Professor of Linguistics

Job description

I am a formal linguist working at the interface of form (syntax) and meaning (semantics). I am especially interested in the linguistic representation of events in time, across and within languages. I have worked on English, Scottish Gaelic, Bengali and Norwegian, and I have received grants from the Norwegian Research Council to do psycholinguistic experiments on language and cognition. 

I have a private webpage and a blog, which you can check out here
