Ros Temple’s research interests lie in the areas of phonetics/phonology and variationist linguistics and the interface between the two, particularly the implications of variability in fine phonetic detail for both phonetic/phonological and variationist theory. She has worked on these topics with reference particularly to French, English and Welsh.
My research focuses on the historical sociolinguistics of multilingualism and language contact, most recently in the context of colonial Louisiana. Other research interests include comparative Romance linguistics and language variation and change in early and late modern French and Spanish.
Associate Professor of French Linguistics, Tutor and Fellow of St Catherine's
My main research interests include the history of French and the structure and regional varieties of contemporary Gallo-Romance languages, alongside comparative Romance linguistics and formal syntax. I have also published on the historical syntax of Italo-Romance varieties and am currently working on the syntax of Venetian.
