Doreen Georgi
Assistant Professor in Linguistics

About me

I am an Assistant Professor in "Variation and Variability in Grammatical Systems" at the University of Potsdam. I received my PhD in 2014 from Leipzig University. Before joining the Department of Linguistics in Potsdam, I spent the academic year 2015/16 as a maître de conférence at the ENS, Institut Jean Nicod in Paris. I study the syntactic and morphological properties of language from a cross-linguistic perspective (with a focus on non-Indo-European languages). I am especially interested in case and agreement (case splits, case stacking, scale effects, syncretism, portmanteau agreement, syntactic vs. semantic agreement), long-distance dependencies (long movement, switch reference, non-local case assignment), locality (reflexes of movement, movement vs. base-generation, island), extraction asymmetries (ATB-movement, subjects vs. non-subjects, arguments vs. adjuncts), grammatical function changing (possessor advancement, inverse, passive), NP-syntax (possession, N-movement), the timing and nature of elementary morpho-syntactic operations and derivation vs. representation.
