Research Interests

Georg is a research assistant on the project, working on null arguments. His main linguistic research interests are in syntax, particularly the nominal domain, morphological theory and the morphosyntax-phonology interface. Previous work has dealt with nominal structure and modification in Basque and the role of nominal structure in apparent subject-verb agreement mismatches in Spanish, Greek and other languages (a phenomenon sometimes called "unagreement"). Georg speaks German, English, Modern Greek and Russian and has basic knowledge of Brazilian Portuguese, Ancient Greek and Latin. His theoretical interests furthermore include Basque as well as the Semitic (Arabic, Amharic) and Bantu languages.
