About Robbie Love

I am a Research Fellow at the School of Education at the University of Leeds, and a member of the Centre for Language Education Research (CLER) which is housed within the School.

Broadly speaking, my research interests are in:

  • applied linguistics,
  • corpus linguistics, especially methodology,
  • language (in) education,
  • LGBT inequalities.

Currently, I am focussing on creating opportunities for corpus methods to inform issues of language in mainstream UK education, working primarily with Professor Alice Deignan.

I also offer linguistics consultancy on a freelance basis.

I was part of the research team that compiled the Spoken British National Corpus 2014 (Spoken BNC2014): a new, 10-million-word corpus of informal spoken English, which was made publicly available in 2017. My PhD thesis is a methodological account of the Spoken BNC2014’s construction. This will be published as a monograph in 2020 as part of Routledge’s Advances in Corpus Linguistics series.
