I’m a novice applied linguist in the Philippines. My interests are like “changing winds and shifting sands” (common language teaching metaphor), but generally, I am interested topics under in language and popular culture; language and gender; discourse analysis; translation, and English as a lingua franca. Quite recently, I was introduced to forensic linguistics, Cebuano linguistics, and persuasive language.

I am currently writing my master’s thesis on discursive news values analysis.

I do a lot of other stuff when not busy with teaching and academic affairs.
