Nigel Fabb

Nigel Fabb is Professor of Literary Linguistics at the University of Strathclyde (Scotland). He has a Ph.D. in linguistics from MIT (1984), was for seventeen years an editor of Journal of Linguistics, and is the author or co-author of ten books. Three of his recent books have argued: that poetic form is communicated as a kind of meaning; that a counting system universally underlies poetic meter (with Morris Halle); and that working memory constrains the relation between poetic form and the verseline.
