Gwilym Lockwood

PhD candidate
Nijmegen, the Netherlands
PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. I research sound-symbolism, or why some things sound like the things they mean and how that affects other things. I tweet as @GwilymLockwood, and I blog about sound-symbolism, messy R code, and cricket here:
