I am interested in the relationship between linguistic reality and linguistic perception. In other words: between what happens in actual language use and what people think happens. At the moment I am working on my PhD research, in which I investigate the relationships between language advice (or prescriptivism) and language use in the Netherlands in the 20th century. My other interest include cursing, loanwords, fact checking and science communication.

Next to my academic work I am a freelance writer and blogger. So far I've written five popular scientific books about language.
