Bert Cappelle is an associate professor of English linguistics at the University of Lille, France. He has published a range of journal articles and book chapters on verb-particle patterns in English and on various curious constructions that cross his path. In addition, he has collaborated on research projects in the core grammar areas of tense and modality. His longer-standing research interests include the linguistic representation of motion and change of state, and the tension between convention and innovation in language use.
Panel members are Florent Perek (designated discussant) and Lotte Sommerer:
Florent Perek is an associate professor in cognitive linguistics at the University of Birmingham. His main research interests lie in the study of grammar from a cognitive perspective, using corpus linguistic and experimental methods. Adopting a usage-based construction grammar approach, he focuses in particular on how syntactic constructions are mentally represented, how they are learned, and how they change over time.
Lotte Sommerer is an assistant professor at the English Department of the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Germany. She is a historical, functional-cognitive linguist who works on morphosyntactic variation and change in Old, Middle and Present Day English. She subscribes to a usage-based, cognitive constructional model of morphosyntax (UCCxG/DCxG) that does full justice to functional and cognitive constraint
Professor Florent Perek has a PhD in English and General Linguistics (University of Freiburg) and is a Lecturer in Cognitive Linguistics at the Department of English Language and Applied Linguistics at University of Birmingham, UK. Professor Perek is the author of several articles in international peer-reviewed journals and has, among his most important publications, the 2015 book, Argument structure in usage-based construction grammar: experimental and corpus-based perspectives, edited by John Benjamins.
