My linguistic research spans computational modelling of language change, machine translation, grammar formalisms, linguistic engineering, spoken dialogue, and aviation communication, with a formal description of Aviation English. As a pilot and a flight instructor, I have first-hand experience of student pilots’ difficulties with radio communication and I investigate how flight training, language background and contextual factors affect pilots’ ability to follow the mandated phraseology.
