My main interests center around historical (socio)linguistics, the tense-aspect-mood system, and the diachronic relationship between the oral and written codes. I am presently investigating historical sociolinguistic methodology and its application to a variety of genres in medieval early Romance vernaculars, with a focus on French, Occitan, and Northern Italian.
