An article about him was in i-squared Magazine, Issue 6 (Winter 2008/9).[1]

Briggs has Erdős number equal to two, obtained by his joint authorship of two papers with George Szekeres. One of these papers was the last published by Szekeres before his death, and Szekeres was Erdős' first co-author.[2]

He also studies the etymology of place-names, and on Middle English etymology, phonology, and semantics (especially in East Anglia), as evidenced by onomastic data.
