About me

Hi! My name is Corrine and I'm a linguist who studies multimodal language use. I'm interested in the ways embodied cognition and general cognitive mechanisms give rise to emergent linguistic structure. My research interests  include embodied approaches to phonology and semantics, usage-based construction grammar, sociolinguistic variation and language change. I also do research on how iconicity impacts language organization and processing and how individual and group experience with language, culture, and society influence linguistic construal.
