Om Stefan Dollinger

Subjects: English & German Language & Linguistics, Historical Linguistics, Sociolinguistics, Dialectology, Lexicography & Lexicology
Academic Title: Ph.D., M.A.
Academic Rank: Professor of English Linguistics

Background

I received my PhD at the University of Vienna, Austria, under the direction of Herbert Schendl and Nikolaus Ritt on the historical development of English in 18th and 19th century Canada, exemplified by the modal auxiliary system (external examiner J. K. Chambers). This book was awarded the Austrian Young Researcher Award (ASCINA Award). My M.A. thesis (supervised by Nikolaus Ritt) deals with morphological change in Old and Middle English, which is interpreted in a framework of cultural evolution.

I studied for a year at the University of Toronto towards my M.A. and when working on my Ph.D. dissertation, I spent one year at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. After becoming a Postdoctoral Research and Teaching Fellow at UBC (SSHRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow), I was Assistant Professor of English (2009--14), then Associate Professor of English at UBC (2014-15). In the fall of 2015 I joined GU's SPL Department as Professor of English Linguistics. I have also worked in Germany, when I was Canadian Studies Guest Professor at the University of Kiel in 2012.

Research Interests

My research interests coalesce around historical linguistics, dialectology and sociolinguistics in English and German. Since 2006 I have, as chief editor of The Dictionary of Canadianisms on Historical Principles (DCHP-2), been heavily involved with lexicography. DCHP-2's online context allowed me to hone my digital humanities skills, which have become central in much of my work. My overall motivation is driven by the exploration of patterns in language variation and change and by the integration of historical and present-day data and approaches. I have recently worked on methodological questions, including the application of written questionnaires to current research questions and contexts.

My research has been funded by grants and awards from Austrian sources (Ministry of Education, Academy of the Sciences, ASCINA), Canadian sources (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, UBC Faculty of Arts) and private sources (Nelson Education Ltd. Toronto). I am a consultant in linguistic matters (P212 New York on name branding). Public outreach and knowledge dissemination is important to me, as I am a media consultant on linguistic issues (e.g. Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, CTV Newsworld, Global TV BC, The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Vancouver Sun); I am giving public talks and lectures on various linguistic topics (e.g. on Global Englishes, Canadian English, the history of English, dictionary making, questions of language use) and I take an avid interest in language pedagogical questions.

I am on a number of boards, including the executive board of the Dictionary Society of North America, the editorial board of the journal Dictionaries, Studia Anglica Posnaniensia, and the Strathy Working Papers. I have served on the Editorial Board of American Speech (2010-12) and was elected Secretary of the International Society for the Linguistics of English (ISLE), serving the 2011-14 term.

Recently, I was organizing chair of the Ninth International Conference on Studies in the History of English (SHEL 2015) and the 20th Biennial Meeting of the Dictionary Society of North America (DSNA 2015).

Publications:

I have published more than 50 articles and reviews (about half of which peer-reviewed), two monographs, one dictionary, I have edited two collections of papers and have created a number of digital humanities research tools (Dictionary Editing Tool software, Bank of Canadian English, The Corpus of Early Ontario English (1776-1849).
