The research group focuses on lexical items and processes, their representation in the lexicon, lexical structures and change as well as on the interface between lexicon and syntax. Our research encompasses a wide array of topics (e.g. derivational morphology, phraseology, argument structure and –realization), languages and languages stages, both within languages and individuals. Our research is theoretical, empirical and applied.

All linguists interested in the lexicon are welcome.
