DFG approves funding for a second period of Exprep (KI-759/8)
We are happy to announce that the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) has decided to extend the funding for our research project “Position and Interpretation of adverbials in German clause structure” (Exprep, KI-759/8).
The second phase will broaden the scope of the investigation by including more adverbial forms as well as adverbial types, and by systematically probing the results of the first project phase, and in particular investigate the hitherto neglected interplay of adverbial-specific with general conditions on word order.
For more information see Exprep, KI-759/8.
