Research interests

    I work on German, my specialist areas being:

  • Semantics and Pragmatics
  • Word formation and lexicology
  • Morphology and syntax
    Also, a particular focus of my research is on the relationship between German and Dutch.

    Current research projects:

  • DFG project on proper name compounds (see also GEPRIS catalogue for project details (in English))
  • The role of audio books for the understanding of literary texts and for reading motivation (with Prof. Dr. Nicole Dehé and Prof. Dr. Kati Hannken-Illjes)
