I’m a second year PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at QMUL. I primarily work on the morphosyntax of clause structure, with a particular interest in multi-clause configurations such as coordination, adjunct clauses and clause chains.
Some research interests
- Swahili clause structure; the morphosyntax of the “narrative marker” ka-.
- The content of functional structure; location marking in the clausal spine.
- Turkish clause structure; the morphosyntax of suspended affixation.
- Morphosyntax of coordination and adjunction, especially at different clausal zones.
