I am a linguist living in Tbilisi, Georgia and have been teaching at the University here for 20 years. I have MA from Tbilisi State University and during last ten years have published works in two fields: metaphor in idioms and language planning. In early 80-ies I had published also several works in comparative linguistics. My doctoral studies were interrupted by the end of Soviet Union. At this point the University is such a mess that there is little point in continuing studies here. I teach Georgian language, culture of speech and comparative stylistics of Georgian and Russian.
I intend to pursue doctoral studies in The UK or Ireland. In mid may I will be visiting Uk and Ireland and wondered if you could make recommendations on professors that I could meet with.
Alternatively any doctoral students that you think may help me narrow my search. I am particularly interested in potential topics of sociolinguistics.
Please let me know your thoughts and thank you for your time and consideration,
