Journal of Linguistics, etc.


I was an editor of Journal of Linguistics, the journal of the Linguistics Association of Great Britain, from 1994 until the end of 2016. The editors are now Kersti Börjars of the University of Manchester, S.J. Hannahs of the University of Newcastle, Helen de Hoop of the University of Nijmegen, and Hans van de Koot of University College London (who replaced me). Melanie Green of the University of Sussex is reviews editor, and Ewa Jaworska is managing editor. (See here for a list of editors since 1965.)

I was a member of the committee of the Linguistics Association of Great Britain from 1988 to 1993, and a member of the steering committee of the North-West Centre for Linguistics from 1997 to 1999. I organized an annual Welsh Syntax Seminar from 1992 to 1996 and again in 1999. From 2000 to 2008 it was organized by Bob Morris Jones of Aberystwyth. It was then organized by David Willis of the University of Cambridge, Maggie Tallerman of the University of Newcastle and myself. It is now organized by Peredur Davies (Bangor, treasurer), Jon Morris (Cardiff, web officer), and Silva Nurmio (Dublin, programme organiser). I was also a founder member of the East Anglian Welsh Syntax Circle
