Biography

AHRC-funded Post-doctoral researcher, Prominent Possessors

I am a research assistant on the AHRC-funded project "Prominent Possessors" (PI: Irina Nikolaeva), studying the syntax of internal possessors and reference tracking (since January 2017). Previously, I worked at the Research Department for Linguistics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and I wrote my dissertation as a member of the "Rethinking Comparative Syntax" (ReCoS) project at the University of Cambridge.

Research

My main research interests are the morphosyntax of case and agreement, and their interaction. In my dissertation, I studied differential object agreement in Hungarian and related phenomena in other languages like global splits and inverse agreement.

At SOAS, I am studying possessive constructions with prominent internal possessors, i.e. possessive structures whose properties are not (just) determined by the head, but by the possessor. This research is carried out as part of the AHRC-funded project "Prominent Possessors" (PI Irina Nikolaeva).
