I am professor in English linguistics and "docent" in general linguistics.

I hold a Ph.D in theoretical linguistics (1999) from the University of Edinburgh. I also hold MA (1993) and BA (1992) degrees in English philology (with second-subject studies in Nordic philology, in journalism and mass communication theory, social psychology and psychology) from the University of Tampere.

Research

My profile in Lund University research portal

My research is mostly in the field of theoretical syntax, with particular reference to Finnish and the other Finnic languages; and to English. My earliest work focussed on adverbials and their positions. I have also worked on prepositional and postpositional phrases; on relative clauses; and on argument structure and realization (esp. on passive and impersonal constructions in Finnish). I am currently investigating the properties and uses of so-called ideophones in Finnish, English and Swedish; a lot of this work is done jointly with FD Maria Wiktorsson from Malmö University.

In addition to doing purely linguistic research, I have also worked on more pedagogical and educational topics, such as the value of teaching study planning to university students, and the challenges of teaching academic writing to non-native speakers / writers of English. This work is done jointly with FD Ellen Turner and FD Cecilia Wadsö Lecaros.
