Introduction.

Welcome to my personal homepage. I'm a lecturer at the department of Modern Greek Studies at the University of Amsterdam, specialized in greek linguistics. My fields of interest are the phonological structure of Greek (Modern, Ancient, Mycenaean), the historical evolution of Greek and learning Greek as a foreign language.

Courses I teach.

Introduction in Greek linguistics.

In this course, students will learn to recognize and explain some characteristics of the Greek language. A wide range of phenomena will be discussed, among others language contact, topic and focus realization, phonological segments, Greek dialects, flection, history of the language, sociolects, language acquisition, clause structure, sound changes, morphological compounding, complementizers and phonological processes.

Greek linguistics.

An alternating course in the Greek lexicon and linguististic varieties or the phonetics and the phonological system of Greek. 

Besides linguistics, I also teach philosophy of science.
