About me

I am a cognitive linguist working on Arabic language from a corpus-based, constructionist approach. In 2013, I defended my doctoral dissertation, titled ‘A corpus study of basic motion verbs in Modern Standard Arabic’, and have re-joined the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Bahrain as an Assistant Professor. I currently work on constructing a spoken corpus of Bahraini Arabic, in addition to working on various projects related to Basic Verbs and Body Part Terms in Arabic. I am also member in computationally-based research groups in NYU AD and CMU-Q that aim to develop resources for Arabic dialect modelling (project MADAR) as well as create a conventional orthography for the spoken dialects in the Arab world (project CODA).
