It's me, hi!

I am a linguist at the University of Edinburgh.

I mainly work on syntactic change in Scots and English, using methods involving parsed historical corpora. Learn more about my research interests under the Research tab.

If you want to work with me in some way, you can get in touch via email (l.gotthard [at] ed [dot] ac [dot] uk).
If you want to apply to do a PhD in Edinburgh you can find more information here. You can also follow the advice given by my colleague here.
