I convene and teach Spanish Language modules (SP1L1, SP1L3).

My areas of interest are:

  • Linguistics
  • Cognitive Linguistics
  • Linguistic Anthropology

My research interests are:

  • The application of Cognitive Linguistics’ (CL) principles to the description of the Spanish Language and Spanish grammar phenomena.
  • The application and integration of CL descriptions to the design and elaboration of learning materials for the Spanish Language students.
  • The influence of the conceptual and linguistic categories and other cognitive devices in the human language and the general conceptualization system.
