Curriculum Vitae

Didier Maillat received his PhD from Oxford University. He currently works as Associate Professor of English Linguistics at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland (since 2006). His research focuses on pragmatic models at various interfaces. He has worked on the pragmatics of spatial reference frames. More recently, his publications have investigated the pragmatics of second language acquisition in connection with bilingual education. In his latest project, he develops a pragmatic account of manipulative discourse.
