For more up to date information please visit https://jamesbrandscience.github.ioMy core research interests span the fields of linguistics, cognitive science and psychology, with a particular focus on the way language is used, learnt and evolves. I adopt a highly multidisciplinary approach, utilising corpus and experimental methodologies in order to produce robust and comprehensive empirical evidence for my research questions. Previously, I have worked on projects that have investigated the cognitive factors underlying language acquisition and evolution, in addition to work on the categorical structure of the human conceptual system.At the NZILBB, I will be investigating the covariation of linguistic variables within the ONZE corpora, on a Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden Funded project with Kevin Watson, Jen Hay and Lynn Clark.
