This page is mainly a jumping off point to other sites I write and/or maintain, plus a few miscellaneous pages that don’t fit anywhere else.
A blog about English for Academic Purposes.
Website for my unit in Bilkent University’s Faculty Academic English programme, which is where I work. (Note that I no longer maintain the FAE-FEASS or main FAE sites.)
I generally prefer to publish online, since it is quicker and makes it more likely that someone will actually read what I've written. However, I have a few dead-tree publications as well.
