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.
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 involved in collaborative work on the syntax of Venetan varieties.
