Photo of Chris C. PalmerChris C. Palmer teaches and researches present-day and historical English linguistics. His publications cover a range of topics on word-formation and derivational morphology; historical sociolinguistics; and educational linguistics, including books on Teaching the History of the English Language (MLA 2019), Teaching Language Variation in the Classroom (Routledge 2019), and Teaching English Language Variation in the Global Classroom (Routledge 2022). Much of his work has examined changes in the use and productivity of nominal suffixes in the history of English. More recently, he's been studying teaching at the high school and university levels of language variation and change in both U.S. and global Englishes. He's also interested in the language, literature, and culture of medieval England; the intersections of politics and language; and interdisciplinary connections between linguistics and writing studies.
