Research

Jocelyne's PhD research is part of the OT project 3H110243: 'From lexical to semantic sociolectometry: new methods for the corpus-based analysis of variation in lexical categorisation' [see project page]. To this extent, she studies semasiological ('meaning') and onomasiological ('naming') variation along regional and stratificational dimensions in the Dutch lexicon. Smaller case studies on a limited number of lexical fields (traffic, IT and emotion concepts) set the stage for aggregate sociolectometric analyses.
