Carita Paradis is Professor of English Linguistics at the Centre for Languages and Literature at Lund University, Sweden. Her main research interests concern meaning in the broad sense. She specializes in lexical semantics and the modelling of meaning within the Cognitive Linguistics framework. She combines corpus methods and experimental methods in her work.
Jean Hudson is Professor of English Linguistics at Malmö University, Sweden. The focus of her research efforts is on the empirical investigation of spontaneous speech data in the search for insights into the relationship between language and cognition. She is currently investigating prepositional usage within the general framework of construction grammar.
Ulf Magnusson is Emeritus Professor of English at Luleå University of Technology, Sweden, and previously held posts as Professor of English and University Lecturer at Högskolan Kristianstad, Sweden. Magnusson's interests are mainly in English lexicography, metaphor, and cognitive linguistics.
