Research Overview

My research focuses on tense, mood and modality, pragmatic markers, indefinites and argument structure. It deals mainly with (West) Germanic but I also have a keen interest in Standard Average European and typology. My work can be situated in the fields of areal linguistics, contrastive linguistics, corpus linguistics, functional/cognitive linguistics and historical linguistics.
