Discourse analysis, Environmental change, Theoretical and corpus-based linguistics
Dr Carmen Dayrell
Senior Research Associate
ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science
My main research interests relate to the use of corpus linguistics methodologies to study language production, from various perspectives and in different settings.
I first investigated potential differences (and similarities) between lexical patterning in translated and non-translated texts of the same language. My attention then turned to English academic writing and I examined features of abstracts written in English by Brazilian graduate students from various disciplines.
My current research focuses on the discourse of climate change in media coverage. Our primary purpose is to investigate how the issue has been framed across Britain and Brazil in the past decade.
