Research interests

I am Associate Professor at UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø, Norway, and a member of the research group CLEAR (Cognitive Linguistics: Empirical Approaches to Russian). My main research areas involve cognitive grammar, corpus and historical linguistics with major focus on Russian morphology and syntax. From a theoretical perspective, I am interested in linguistic variation and rivalry as a result of both psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic factors. From a practical perspective, I address the issue of how empirically based cognitive linguistics can be used in second language learning and in developing strategic language teaching materials.

Fields of interest: Cognitive Linguistics, Construction Grammar, Corpus Linguistics, Slavic linguistics, historical linguistics

Morphology, syntax-semantics interface, grammaticalization, aspect, verbal prefixes, quantifiers and pronouns, word-formation, non-standard language, metaphor
