As a language practioner, I have worked for more than 30 years in many different fields relating to English, including journalism, teaching, writing and editing. I was privileged to co-author the Oxford English Grammar - advanced guide (2015) and have also co-authored several Oxford University Press English language text books. My editing experience has involved editing academic texts for various univerisities in South Africa and for the Centre for Advanced Studies of African Society (CASAS).
