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), complex segments in particular in Greek, the historical evolution of Greek and the teaching of Greek as a foreign language.

Courses I teach.

Introduction in Greek linguistics.

In this course, students will learn to recognize and explain the main features 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 1: Syntax.

Students will learn to analyze some syntactic characteristics of Greek within the theoretical framework of generative syntax. Special attention will be given to the verbal aspect, the complementizers, the hierarchic structure of the clause, the interaction between morphology and syntax and the left periphery of the clause.

 

Greek linguistics 2: Phonology.

Sudents will give an account of the main phonological features of Greek within the theoretical framework of optimality theory and the segmental representation. Discussed will be, among others, the segment inventory, the syllable structure, phonological processes, complex segments, stress and intonation.

Besides linguistics, I also teach philosophy of science and several language courses.

Zomerschool Europese talen en culturen

Hieronder het materiaal en de presentaties die ik gebruikt heb tijdens de zomerschool Europese talen en culturen, 20-24 augustus 2012, Universiteit van Amsterdam. Het gaat om de lessen Griekse taal, de hoorcolleges over Europese schriftsoorten en dialecten en de workshop vreemde woordjes leren.

History

In 2008, two Greek linguists happend to visit the Meertens Institute at the same time. This gave rise to the idea to gather other linguists for a presentation of their research and thus the Amsterdam workshop on Greek linguistics was born. Since 2009, the department of Modern Greek studies is the co-organizer of the event. Every year we welcome an invited speaker from Greece and several other participants from all around Europe. We also offer students the opportunity to present the results from their BA of MA theses to a wider audience.
