Case and agreement in ditransitive constructions

From September 2019 to September 2020, I was a post-doc at Leiden University, working on a project on ditransitive constructions awarded through the LEaDing Fellows programme, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action COFUND programme, funded in part by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.

I used a so-called “typological gap”, that is a type of language we can describe but that is not found anywhere in the world, to study variation in the expression of case and agreement in ditransitive constructions. You can find more about the project here.

Prominent possessors

In 2017 to 2018, I was a member of the AHRC-funded project Prominent Possessors at SOAS University of London and worked with Irina Nikolaeva (PI), Oliver Bond, and Greville Corbett.

The project dealt with possessive constructions in which a noun phrase-internal possessor behaves as if it were external to the noun phrase, for example with respect to agreement or switch-reference.
