CV de Francis Cornish


Possessing a  PhD in Linguistics (University of Sussex, 1982),  he was Professor of English Linguistics in the Studies of the Anglophone World department at the University of Toulouse II, France. Now retired, he is currently on the editorial board of the journal French Language Studies (CUP), and is a member of the advisory board of the French linguistics on-line journal Discours, as well as of the research unit S’caladis (semantics and discourse) within the research group CLLE-ERSS at Toulouse II.

 

Francis has authored two books on anaphora in English and French within a discourse context (Routledge, 2015, republished from a book originally published by Croom Helm, London in 1986, and Oxford UP, 1999). He has also written extensively on anaphora, deixis, discourse structure, L2 reading, teaching and learning, agreement, information structure, reference, predication and the lexical semantics-syntax interface. In the early 2000s, he initiated a series of psycholinguistic experiments testing native English and French speakers’ processing of object pronouns in real time, the results of which are reported in Cornish et al. (2005) ‘Indirect anaphora in English and French: a crosslinguistic study of pronoun resolution’ (Journal of Memory and Language 52(3)).
