My research focuses on classical problems of historical linguistics which may receive new inputs by current advances in general linguistic theory and quantitative linguistics. My main research areas are:

  • Syntax
  • Syntax-semantics interface
  • Formal theories of language change: syntactic change and semantic change
  • Syntax and semantics of the nominal phrase / DP: syntax of adnominal arguments, syntax and semantics of reference
  • Syntax and semantics of negation
  • Voice, Argument structure, Case
