Authors' editor, translator, academic writing trainer & facilitator
Wendy Baldwin | Linguaverse Linguistic Services


I specialize in academic editing and translation in the areas of social science and humanities that relate to language, cognition and learning both within and across individuals and within and across societies and cultures. Within that, I work in:

  • Linguistics and all its subfields, including psycholinguistics, discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, first and second language acquisition, cognitive and functional approaches to syntax and linguistic theory, and linguistic description
  • Language and cognitive disorders and testing
  • Cognitive psychology
  • Cognitive science
  • Second language instruction and learning; computer-mediated instruction
  • Theories and scholarship of teaching and learning, teacher training

And because my education and experience ranges from the more qualitative and narrative end of the spectrum and to the more quantitative and experimental end, I also work in the fields of:

  • Anthropology
  • Literature
  • Peace, conflict and justice studies; international relations
  • Industrial organization, management and behavior
  • Applied engineering

I also help academics write by running structured writing retreats and teaching academic and scientific writing seminars.
