About

Mathew Gillings recently completed his PhD in Linguistics at Lancaster University (UK), where he also completed his BA in English Language (2012-15), and MA in Language and Linguistics (2015-16). Before joining the Vienna University of Economics and Business in May 2020, he was employed as an Associate Lecturer at Lancaster University, and taught on the undergraduate English Language and Corporate Communication modules. As a member of the ESRC Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Science, Mathew was also involved with various corpus compilation projects, including the Encyclopedia of Shakespeare’s Language project.

Research Interests

Mathew’s research interests are located broadly within the field of corpus linguistics, a method used to analyse large amounts of naturally-occurring linguistic data - both quantitatively and qualitatively. His previous research includes a methodological critique of topic modelling, a corpus-based investigation into verbal cues to deception, and a corpus approach to variational pragmatics (specifically, politeness). Mathew’s other past and ongoing work uses corpus methods to investigate Shakespeare’s language, deception, and the comprehension of health texts.
