Cognitive Linguistics, Russian, constructions, Slavic languages, statistical analysis of linguistic data, first language acquisition, Russian as a foreign language
Parts of courses RUS-1001, RUS-0100, RUS-1025, RUS-2025 (BA level), RUS-3010, RUS-3030 (MA level), 2015-2016 at UiT. In 2015, I delivered four invited lectures on Cognitive Linguistics and Russian Studies at the University of Graz, Austria (8 academic hours).
I am a member of CLEAR research group at UiT. I work on the postdoctoral project entitled "Constructional Landscape of Russian Syntax: Modeling native speakers' knowledge for second language learners (CLARUS)." The main objective is to build and calibrate the Russian Constructicon, an open-access electronic resource that offers a searchable database of over 2200 multiword syntactic constructions accompanied with thorough descriptions of their properties (available here, a new interface is currently under construction).
My duties include
• data collection and analysis of Russian constructions;
• dissemination of research results;
• work on the content of the Russian Constructicon electronic resource (see project page)
• organizing and running weekly on-line meetings of project members from different research institutions in two/three different countries;
• co-organizing a LingPhil PhD course "Aspect across languages and linguistic schools" (UiT, Fall 2019, course plan);
• co-organizing an academic conference "Aspect in the Arctic" (UiT, Fall 2019);
• organizing a November Seminar in Russian Studies at UiT (Novemberseminaret i russisk, November 2019);
• co-organizing SCLC-2020: Slavic Cognitive Linguistics Conference (UiT, June 2021);
• co-organizing the Summer Seminar of the Norwegian Cognitive Linguistics Association (NORKOGs sommerseminaret, June 2021)
