About

Ursula Lutzky studied English, French and Finnish at the University of Vienna, where she completed her MA in English and French studies and her PhD in English Linguistics. During her PhD studies, she was awarded a DOC-scholarship by the Austrian Academy of Sciences, which allowed her to spend extended research visits at the Universities of Munich and Lancaster, UK. Before joining the Vienna University of Economics and Business, she worked as a Lecturer and Research Assistant at the English Department of the University of Vienna (2005-2010) and as a Senior Lecturer and BA Co-Course Director at the School of English at Birmingham City University, UK (2010-2016).

Research Interests

Ursula Lutzky's research interests include business communication (in particular customer communication), pragmatics (in particular speech acts and discourse markers), stylistics and corpus linguistics. That is to say that she is interested in studying ‘language in use’ in a variety of contexts and the stylistic effects that are created as a consequence. Her studies mainly use a corpus linguistic methodology, which means that she searches big data collections using specialised software, and she has experience in compiling and annotating (XML) corpora. More recently, she started a project on the use of the microblogging platform Twitter in customer communication.
