Hi

I am a PhD student in corpus linguistics at the University of 
Sheffield in England. I am currently looking at fixed expression/ 
idiomatic type structures. Can anyone tell me of any other similar 
work/ articles I could look at?

Thanks

Subject: Language of Teachers in Mainstream Schools

Dear colleagues,

I am completing an A2 level English Language
Investigation course. My hypothesis is to find out how
teachers tailor their language to help the needs of
Asperger's Syndrome children.

I am also looking to find out different aspects of
Asperger Syndrome children's language.

Any help you could give me would be appreciated.

Many Thanks
