I’m a language researcher and writer from the Netherlands, currently working on a variety of projects inside and outside of linguistics.
I’m currently doing a post-doc at the University of Antwerp on Mind-Bending Grammars, a project on language change in 17th century English and social networks. Other research interests include strong and weak verbs, analogy, language play and game studies in the broad sense.
I am editor-in-chief of The Ontological Geek, where we write criticism of games and other pop cultural subjects, from brief thoughts to thoughtful essays. I also blog about music on Evening of Light (mostly mixtapes these days). Anything that doesn’t fit into those categories, you’ll likely find here.
