Dr Marc Olivier-Loiseau

Academic linguist 

I am a Lecturer in French Linguistics at the University of Oxford. My research lies at the intersection of formal syntax and historical linguistics, with a focus on Old French and Old Occitan.


Prior to my current post, I held research and teaching positions at Queen's University Belfast and Ulster University. I have a PhD in Linguistics, with specialisation in historical syntax. In 2023, I was awarded a Seal of Excellence by the European Commission in recognition of the quality of my research. My research mainly focuses on clitic placement, restructuring clauses, and infinitives.
