Psycholinguistic reality of constructions

ErstbetreuerProf. Dr. Lars Konieczny
ZweitbetreuerProf. Dr. Martin Hilpert

Constructionist approaches always try to be as cognitive as possible. But on which stage are constructions stored in our brain and can they be proved to be real in a psycholinguistic way? The main difference of constructionist approaches to other linguistic models is the independence of their ...

Beyond Tense and Aspect: Temporal Conceptualisation in Present-Day Spoken English

ErstbetreuerProf. Dr. Dr. h. c. Christian Mair
ZweitbetreuerProf. Dr. Stefan Pfänder

There exists a close cognitive relationship between space and time, evidenced in language by the often parallel surface structures of spatiotemporal constructions. The focus of this project is the cognitive coordinate system used to locate a target event (TE) relative to a reference point (RP) on ...

Bella Diekmann

Word production in sentence context: An ECoG investigation

ErstbetreuerProf. Dr. Peter Auer
ZweitbetreuerProf. Dr. Tonio Ball

Combining neuroscience and corpus based linguistics the project at hand investigates neural activity during naturalistic, spontaneous speech production. The analysis is based on a multimodal corpus of simultaneously recorded audio, video and electrocortigographic data that were recorded for ...

Collaborative Utterances

The Multimodal Production of Syntactic Co-Constructions in Collaborative Storytelling

ErstbetreuerProf. Dr. Stefan Pfänder
ZweitbetreuerProf. Dr. Dr. h. c. Christian Mair

I investigate syntactic co-constructions in French and Spanish conversations. My research focus is twofold: on one hand, I am interested in recurrent syntactic and pragmatic formats that allow interactants to collaboratively produce utterances in real time. On the other hand, I am particularly ...

The impact of morpho-syntactic constraints and frequency of use on the evolution of the subjunctive mood in Italian

ErstbetreuerProf. Dr. Rolf Kailuweit
ZweitbetreuerProf. Dr. Stefan Pfänder

The subjunctive mood in Italian can be said to have undergone a structural reorganization which affects both the functions and the grammar of its usage.
Mood variation, the alternation of different moods to convey similar meanings, is a defining feature of speech. The present project aims at ...

Frequency effects in the processing of German consonant clusters

ErstbetreuerProf. Dr. Peter Auer
ZweitbetreuerJunProf. Dr. Adriana Hanulikova

I investigate frequency effects in the processing of German syllable-initial consonant clusters. High-frequency clusters such as /ʃt-/ are compared to low-frequency clusters such as /tʃ-/ with regard to accuracy of perception and production. The objective of my research is to determine whether ...
