Tutor for Critical Discourse Analysis (semester 2)

Current research interests

My current research is based in developmental linguistics, looking in particular at the teaching of the Irish language to children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) in primary schools in Ireland.

Past research interests

I am also interested in Critical Discourse Analysis. A previous study conducted focused on computer-mediated discourse analysis to identify strategies employed to persuade.
