Westendorp, Maud


PhD Linguistics

Job description

I am a graduate student in Theoretical Linguistics at CASTLFish. My primary research interest is variation and change in the Nordic languages and dialects. In my dissertation I consider different ways the Verb Second rule breaks down in Norwegian (e.g., V3-triggering preverbal adverbs, non-V2 wh-questions, and embedded verb second). Find an overview of my work in my CV or on my website.
