I am a professor of French language and linguistics. I am affiliated with the research group GaP. My research, since many years, focusses on evidential and epistemic-modal marking in French. I am the author of more than 120 publications and of the on-line bibliography "Lexicales" (5800+ references) and have lectured in more than 50 cities, in 20 different countries. I am an editor of the Journal of French Language Studies (Cambridge) and a member of the scientific committee of Cahiers de Lexicologie, Cahiers Chronos, Cahiers de Praxématique, Faits de Langue, Scolia and many conferences.
