Maristi Partridge (lecturer)

I am a lecturer at the Vaal Triangle Campus of the North-West University. I have completed my master’s dissertation entitled Specificity in lexical verbs: a corpus-based lexicological study in which I investigated lexical specificity in the communication verbs of BSAE and L1 English. Currently I am working on my doctoral thesis in which I provide a collostructional analysis of the verb complementation patterns in Black South African English (BSAE). I am interested in English linguistics (more specifically language change, functional linguistics, cognitive linguistics and corpus linguistics), and I also enjoy investigating linguistic matters in translated texts.
