Frank Boers’ initial research interests were in the fields of lexicology (e.g., studies of polysemy) and semantics generally (e.g., studies of metaphor). Most of his more recent research interests were sparked by his long experience as a language teacher and teacher trainer. He now publishes and teaches mostly on matters of second or foreign language acquisition and pedagogy, often with a focus on vocabulary and phraseology.
Frank is co-editor of the journal Language Teaching Research.
