Position: Professor of English Linguistics
Research unit: Functional, Cognitive and Descriptive Linguistics
GRAMIS research: Kristin Davidse works within a functional-cognitive linguistic frame; recent work (including supervision of doctorates and projects) has focused mostly on areas related to the English NP, such as quantification and identification, and on grammaticalization and emergent grammar in the English NP, e.g. nouns or adjectives shifting from descriptive to emphasizing, (post)determining, quantifying and other (inter-)subjective uses.
