Research overview <p>I work at&nbsp;the intersections of language, mind and health(care), exploring mental/physical&nbsp;illness and what it means to be unwell&nbsp;through the language&nbsp;of patients, carers, healthcare professionals, journalists, poets, writers, etc. I examine forensically&nbsp;<u>how</u>&nbsp;they&nbsp;say what they say.&nbsp;</p><p>I use​ discourse analysis&nbsp;to investigate patterns in everyday language around&nbsp;mental and physical health(care) and stylistics to investigate the representation of mental and physical illness in fiction and non-fiction. All of this is aided by&nbsp;corpus linguistic methods, which allow me to handle large data sets and focus on statistically significant results.&nbsp;Metaphor, personal pronouns, and negation can be particularly revealing when it comes to illness, so I often focus on those.</p><p>Keywords:&nbsp;Non-literary stylistics; discourse analysis, metaphor, corpus methods, medical humanities, health communication.</p>
