About me

As a linguist with a strong background in psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics, I am particularly interested in linguistic variation, especially in areal-horizontal, social-vertical and interindividual variation of German. My main areas of research are adult production as well as child language acquisition (L1 and L2) of German in Austria on the basis of speech corpora, with a focus on morphology, morphosyntax, morphophonology, pragmatics, and vocabulary.

I am involved in the SFB project German in Austria (DiÖ): Variation - Contact - Perception (FWF F60) as well as in several crosslinguistic studies that compare first language acquisition of German to other languages by using the CHILDES system.

As I am interested in different research methodologies, I am also conducting production tests as well as processing experiments with children and adults in order to compare their results to those of spontaneous production data.

Theoretically, I have mostly been working in the framework of Naturalness Theory (especially Natural Morphology), of the Linguistic Dynamics Approach, and of Usage-Based Theory.

With respect to teaching, I am trying to involve my students in participating actively in my current research projects.

I am married and have two grown-up sons.
