Chris C. Palmer teaches and publishes on present-day and historical English linguistics, including articles and books on word-formation, historical sociolinguistics, and pedagogy. Much of his work has examined changes in the use and productivity of nominal suffixes in English from 1300-1600. 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.
