Biography

I gained a BA degree in English and a Masters in English Language teaching. As an EFL lecturer and researcher in a multicultural setting like Coventry University, I am interested in the linguistic, cultural and pragmatic features of lectures across different academic cultures and nationalities.

Description of Project

My PhD research is based on the Engineering Lecture Corpus (ELC) which is currently being developed in Coventry. I aim to add the discourse and pragmatic features of the Nigerian engineering lectures unto the corpus and compare those features to that of other nationalities present in the corpus. The ELC at present contains videos and transcripts of lectures from countries like the United Kingdom, Italy, New Zealand and Malaysia. The working title for my research is: ‘A corpus study of lectures as a genre of spoken academic discourse in the Nigerian higher education’.
