In our research we combine questions from theoretical and computational linguistics using a combination of methods from theoretical linguistics, linguistic data science, experimental linguistics, and computational linguistics.
The project aims for an empirical model of the properties of EO verbs and a uniform analysis of German word order patterns and reflexive binding. The project is supported by a DFG grant (KI 759/9-1).
We approach the hypothesis that adverbial modifiers occupy absolute or relative fixed position in German clause structure. Therefore, we conduct experimental studies with test items systematically derived from annotated corpus data. The project is supported by a DFG grant (KI 759/8-1/2).
The project investigated the grammar of non-canonic combinations of prepositions and countable singular nouns that violate the near-universal tendency of determiner realization. The project is supported by a DFG grant (KI 759/5-1 and KI 759/5-2).
