Travis Wright's research endeavours to make a contribution to the descriptive grammar of Post-Classical Greek by analysing prepositional semantics in the Septuagint, where issues of language contact and language change provide invaluable evidence for understanding the evolution of the Greek language. This research requires specialization in Cognitive Linguistics and Natural Language Processing, as well as the diachronic study of both the Greek (e.g. Classical to Standard Modern) and Hebrew languages.
