My area of expertise is the interface of lexicon, grammar and meaning across the languages of the world. I have worked and work on topics such as how people talk about motion, sensory perception and the landscape across languages. My main focus is on African languages, especially Avatime (Niger-Congo), spoken in Ghana, where I have done extended fieldwork. I’m currently interested in the language of pain, across languages as well as in medical communication.
