Pascual Cantos Gómez is Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Murcia, Spain. Prior to this he taught English in a secondary school and the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas of Murcia. He is a member of the Lingüística Aplicada a la Computación, Enseñanza de Lenguas y Lexicografí Research Group.

Much of Stefan's work starts out from computationally and/or statistically analyzing large databases of naturally-occurring language to identify formal distributional patterns and how they reflect, or interact with, the meanings and functions that are associated with these patterns. Topicwise, he is currently most interested in the interplay between words and syntactic patterns, the way syntactic structures are acquired by young children, and the creative ways people coin new words; the theoretical framework Stefan feels most closely associated with is that of cognitive/functional linguistics.
