Research Interests: Nick's main research focuses on the way in which language is used within organisations, particularly sports teams. His research to date has investigated leadership development, the construction of team identity in sports teams, and the negotiation of local politeness norms and power within a hierarchy. Nick also carries out research on language variation and change, and is currently investigating patterns of variation in the way the English Definite Article is realised in Australian English.
