Features
My main research fields are English vocabulary, word-formation, and morphology. English is unique in possessing very rich amount of high-quality corpora and also in functioning the first ‘world language' in history, engendering dialects of non-native speakers all over the world. Using these original features as our data source allows us to watch and experience the process of how words and morphemes appear, grow, mature, and disappear.

Targeted Application(s)/Industry
My research could be useful for those interested in i) Construction and development of English dictionaries and corpora, ii) machine translation and language processing, iii) English education, and iv) coinages and naming in English
