After a diverse career in language teaching, management of an environmental NGO and publishing school textbooks, I joined NWU on 1 September 2012 as a staff member in the subject group Academic Literacy (AL). My master’s degree focused on the description of the participle in Afrikaans as another form of the verb from a cognitive usage-based description framework. I recently enrolled for a PhD that will focus on the design of a diagnostic placement instrument.
