Avelino Corral Esteban works as a full-time Lecturer at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. He teaches courses on English syntax, semantics, phonetics and phonology, and contrastive linguistics in different degrees (English Studies, Modern Languages, Spanish Studies, etc.). He holds a PhD from UNED (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia), a BA in English Philology from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and a BA in German Philology from Universidad Complutense de Madrid. His main areas of research interest cover the study of the grammar of the Native American languages spoken in the area of the Great Plains in the USA and Canada, (i.e. Lakota, Cheyenne, among others), the interaction between syntax, semantics and pragmatics across languages, and the comparative analysis of the syntax of Romance, Germanic and Celtic languages.

At present, he is leading the Honóxease Project, whose aim is to foster the preservation and revitalization of the Cheyenne language, an Algonquian language spoken in Montana and Oklahoma in the USA. Furthermore, he is collaborating in the national research projects “Desarrollo de un laboratorio virtual para el procesamiento computacional del lenguaje natural desde un paradigma functional” (FFI2011-53788-C3-1-P) and “Redes telecolaborativas para el desarrollo de las competencias transversales en la Educación Superior” (EDU2014-54673-R). Finally, he is a member of the research group on “Long-term histories of grammatical traditions” at the University of Oxford (AH/M011291/1)
