2 PhD STUDENTS IN LINGUISTICS:
THE GRAMMAR OF (UN)TRANsFERABLE POSSESSION
The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) will be funding the Free Competition research project “Lend me your ears: the grammar of (un)transferable possession.”. This project was awarded to Prof. dr. Johan Rooryck (Leiden University, Main applicant) and dr. Marjo van Koppen (Utrecht University) and will be carried out as a coöperation between Leiden University and Utrecht University. For more information, please see the full description of the project at http://media.leidenuniv.nl/legacy/vc-grammar-of-possession-website-version.pdf
Within this project there are 2 vacancies for PhD students:
1. PhD-project 1 (LUCL, Leiden University)
We are looking for a PhD-student who will investigate the expression of possession in a large number of unrelated languages in order to determine:
The range of variation in different semantic types of possession.
How these different types are mapped on morphological and syntactic expressions.
The PhD-student will participate in a research team consisting of Prof.dr. Johan Rooryck and Dr. Erik Schoorlemmer at Leiden University, as well as Prof. dr. Norbert Corver, Dr. Marjo van Koppen and a PhD-student at Utrecht University. The PhD student will be based at the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL). The project will start on 1 February 2013.
2. PhD project 2 (UiL – OTS, Utrecht University)
The PhD project aims at answering the following questions: Which different morphosyntactic constructions of possession are attested in Dutch and languages/dialects closely related to Dutch? How are these different morphosyntactic constructions mapped to semantic types of possession? Which generalizations can be formulated about this mapping? What does this mapping reveal about the range of morphosyntactic variation in the expression of each semantic type of possession?
The PhD student will be based at Utrecht University, and participate in a research team consisting of Dr Marjo van Koppen and Prof. dr. Norbert Corver at Utrecht University and Prof.dr. Johan Rooryck and Dr. Erik Schoorlemmer at Leiden University.
