Welcome to the personal website for Matthew Hunt. I am a 2nd-year PhD candidate in the Department of Linguistics at Queen Mary, University of London. On this website you will find details of my academic interests, links to papers (as-yet-unwritten) and presentations I have done, as well as a few tutorials I have written for programs I’ve attempted to use* (i.e. R, MATLAB and Gorilla)
My main interests are the following:
- Variationist sociolinguistics, with particular focus on language perception
- Multidimensional semantics, expressives etc
- Experimental approaches to semantics, pragmatics and sociolinguistics
- Swearing and taboo language more generally
I’d be interested on collaborating with other researchers on any of the above topics. In particular, if you have a topic you’d like to run an experiment on and are looking for a collaborator with experience designing, and running online experiments, then do get in contact!
