Mark Richard Lauersdorf
In search of patterns of historical language variation and user interaction
(or: Who used what linguistic features with whom, when, where, why, and how?)
Mark Richard Lauersdorf is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Kentucky where he teaches linguistic theory and method, primarily in the areas of historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics, and language contact. His research focuses on data-driven corpus-based sociolinguistic investigation of historical language variation and language contact in complex socio-political and socio-cultural environments, using statistical and visualization methods of data analysis to identify salient patterns in the linguistic and socio-historical data – work that has given rise to the formulation of the "Use all the data!" principle (referred to by some as the "Lauersdorf principle"). A strong believer in the power of scientific collaboration, Lauersdorf is the founder of the North American Research Network in Historical Sociolinguistics (NARNiHS) and has been a visiting professor/researcher in Germany, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland.
