As a linguist, I am presently investigating multilingualism – how, when and why people use various languages at the same time and how this changes the languages they use. These questions occupy me as a postdoctoral researcher in a project called Traces of Contact, at the Centre for Language Studies of Radboud University Nijmegen in The Netherlands. I have also been looking at the processes by which new languages arise, and have written a descriptive Grammar of Pichi, a West African creole language.
