Dr Andreas Buerki

I am a member of the Centre for Language and Communication Research.

I am principally a quantitative corpus linguist and phraseologist, looking at how language as actually used by speakers (and writers) in real contexts works. My work is of a broadly usage-based, cognitive linguistic outlook, employing a constructionist approach to linguistic structure.

I am particularly interested in the various aspects of formulaic language (common turns of phrase, phraseology) and in the social and cultural nature of language and how this shows in linguistic structure, language change and all sorts of more applied areas like second language acquisition.

Before coming to Cardiff I taught at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the University of the West of England, the University of Basel, Korea University and Gwangju University (Republic of Korea).
