Membership in editorial boards is given in my CV-in detail. In the case of two international journals, I have been offered a slightly higher status than as member of their editorial board; this naturally requires extra attention and joint responsibility for the continuing high quality of the journals. The journals are

- Member of Specialist Board;

Constructions and Frames (John Benjamins Publ.)

- Advisory editor

In the menue to the left, under Publications, I have organized my publications under labels for some of the most frequent fields that I have worked on. Not all publications relevant to a particular category has been included in these lists - just the ones I think are the most important ones.

If you really want a full picture of all my publications, go to the Complete List of Publications, where I have disclosed everything, year-by-year.
