Sascha Alexeyenko

I am a stand-in professor of syntax at the English Linguistics Department of the University of Göttingen (Germany), replacing Hedde Zeijlstra in 2017-2019. Before that, I was a postdoc in the Graduiertenkolleg Nominal Modification at the University of Frankfurt and a member of the formal semantics group (⇢ Thomas Ede Zimmermann). Still earlier, I worked at the University of Vienna (⇢ Katharina Hartmann) and at the Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Osnabrück (⇢ Peter Bosch). You can download my full CV here.

In 2015, I defended my PhD thesis on the syntax and semantics of adjectival and adverbial manner modification, which has been supervised by Peter Bosch at the University of Osnabrück (committee members: Peter Bosch, Louise McNally, Roberto Zamparelli, Hedde Zeijlstra). The thesis can be downloaded here.

My work lies at the interface of syntax and semantics of natural languages, and I am also interested in linguistic typology. Somewhat more specifically, the domains I have worked on include event semantics (quantification in event semantics, manner modification, habituality), categorial status of adjectives and adverbs cross-linguistically, constraints on linearization (particularly within the nominal phrase), semantics of gradability, case and agreement, morphosyntax and semantics of nominalizations. For written work on some of these topics, see research.
