Profile

My research revolves around the syntax and morphosyntax of Arabic dialects. I am interested in diachronic syntax and language change, and the employment of comparative methodologies with which to reconstruct how various changes could have progressed in time and what the triggers may have been.

My area of expertise includes constraint-based theories of syntax, particularly the Lexical Functional Grammar framework, diachronic syntax, language development and change.

My PhD dissertation was concerned with the development of temporal, aspectual and modal verbs and auxiliaries of various sorts in Maltese and their synchronic syntactic analysis.
