Description

I am an Associate Professor in General Linguistics. My current research project Lexicalization of negation and its role for the development of negation markers is funded by the Bank of Sweden Tercenary Foundation.

My main interests are in typology and language geography. I also have a special interest in issues of grammaticalization, lexicalization and language description. The domain of functional syntax is slowly breaking into my world through my current project on negation of non-verbal and existential sentences.
