Research interests



I am a postdoctoral researcher in linguistics at the Department of Languages and Literatures at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden). I am originally from Belgium (the northern Dutch-speaking part) and currently live in Gothenburg. My research interests are language variation and change studied from a functional perspective. I have mainly worked on emerging verb constructions, word order variation and phonological variation in Dutch. I currently work on the project The emergence of periphrastic verb constructions in Dutch. A construction grammar approach to language change funded by the Swedish Research Council. From 1 October 2014, I will be working as a senior lecturer in Dutch at the University of Stockholm.
