  • Dr Clarence Green currently lectures in Psycholinguistics, Corpus Linguistics and Research Methods at the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University. He holds a PhD in linguistics (University of Melbourne) and his research interests include the cognitive psychology of language, corpus linguistics, disciplinary literacy, literary stylistics and cognitive-functional grammar. His research has appeared in journals such as Cognitive Linguistics, Language and Literature, Functions of Language, and Literary and Linguistic Computing. His most recent book, Patterns and Development in the English Clause System (2017), is an examination of English clause grammar from a usage-based linguistics perspective.

    His current psycholinguistic research explores how the forms and functions of language interact with other cognitive domains, particularly working memory, and his corpus research involves using corpora to explore the language of academic disciplines, including literature, and produce pedagogical resources for enhancing disciplinary literacy.
