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.

You can view my pub­lic­a­tions page for an over­view of my aca­demic and non-academic writing.
