My research interests are EFL/ ESP vocabulary pedagogy and corpus linguistics. I have worked on creating corpus-based lists of technical words for EFL Nursing students and morphemes for EFL Medical students. My current PhD study mainly focuses on the corpus-driven approach to examining semantic aspects of semi-technical medical vocabulary.
