Ymchwil academaidd, arweinydd prosiect

 gwaith David Parsons yn canolbwyntio ar ieithoedd brodorol Prydain yn yr Oesoedd Canol, ac yn enwedig y modd y maent yn ymddangos mewn enwau lleoedd. Mae wrthi’n ysgrifennu cyfrol i Gymdeithas Enwau Lleoedd Lloegr ar enwau cantref Croesoswallt yng ngogledd-orllewin swydd Amwythig – ardal yr oedd y Gymraeg yn ffynnu ynddi hyd y cyfnod modern. Yn ddiweddar fe gwblhaodd fonograff gwahanol ar rai o’r ffynonellau canoloesol sy’n ymwneud â’r ardal hynod ddiddorol hon ar y ffin ieithyddol. Ymhlith y prosiectau eraill sydd ar y gweill ganddo mae erthyglau ar y rhyngweithio a welwyd yng ngogledd-orllewin Lloegr rhwng yr ieithoedd Norseg, Saesneg, Gaeleg a Brythoneg (fersiwn Cumbria); goroesiad Lladin fel iaith lafar ym Mhrydain ar ôl y cyfnod Rhufeinig; tystiolaeth enwau lleoedd ar gyfer yr eglwys ganoloesol yng Nghymru a Lloegr; ac arysgrifau canoloesol cynnar de-orllewin yr Alban.

David sydd hefyd yn arwain prosiect ‘Cwlt y Seintiau yng Nghymru’, sy’n graddol gyhoeddi golygiadau o destunau Cymraeg a Lladin, yn rhyddiaith ac yn farddoniaeth, o Gymru’r Oesoedd Canol, ynghyd â llawer o wybodaeth ychwanegol am y seintiau a’r modd y caent eu mawrygu.

Mae’n Gyfarwyddwr ar ‘Arolwg Enwau Lleoedd Lloegr’, y prosiect ymchwil sydd wedi bod yn cael ei gefnogi hwyaf gan yr Academi Brydeinig, ac yn aelod o bwyllgorau ‘Corpws Cerflunwaith Garreg Eingl-Sacsonaidd’ yr Academi a Chymdeithas Enwau Lleoedd Cymru. Mae’n olygydd ar y cyfnodolyn Nomina sy’n ymwneud ag astudiaethau enwau.

Ef oedd Cyfarwyddwr Sefydliad Astudiaethau Enwau Prifysgol Nottingham cyn iddo symud i’r Ganolfan ym mis Chwefror 2009.
