Sascha Alexeyenko

I am a postdoc in syntax [uφ:Hedde Zeijlstra] and semantics [λx.Clemens Mayr] at the Dept of English Linguistics at the University of Göttingen, where I also worked as a replacing professor of syntax in 2017-2019. Before coming to Göttingen, I was at the Universities of Frankfurt (postdoc in the graduate school Nominal Modification, member of Ede Zimmermann's group) and Vienna (postdoc in Katharina Hartmann's group). I did my PhD in linguistics and cognitive science under the supervision of Peter Bosch at the University of Osnabrück, my dissertation being on the syntax and semantics of manner modification. You can find my full CV here.

My work lies at the interface of syntax and semantics of natural languages, and I am also interested in linguistic typology. I have worked on various topics in event semantics (quantification, manner modification, habituality); constraints on linearization in the nominal phrase; the categorial status of adverbs; the semantics of gradability; agreement and case; the morphosyntax of number; nominalizations and their morphosyntax-semantics mapping.
