Topic of the dissertation: Topics in the morphosyntax of Caucasian languages
The dissertation is concerned with the morphosyntactic complexity of languages spoken in the Caucasus, especially Northwest- and Northeast Caucasian languages. The main focus will be on the syntax of complex clauses, i.e. complement clauses, relative clauses and adverbial clauses, with regards to their formal and functional properties in order to provide a microtypological/areal analysis. The language data used in the dissertation stem from own fieldwork data as well as from existing corpora.
