Stijn's research aims at the interdisciplinary convergence between experimental psycholinguistic and corpus-based linguistic research in the domain of categorisation in natural language. More specifically he focuses on the taxonomical organisation of human concepts, in order to shed new corpus-linguistic light on the psycholinguistic notion of "basic level concepts".
