LSA 318: Syntactic dependencies

Line Mikkelsen received her Ph.D. in Linguistics from UCSC in 2004. Her research interests are the syntax, semantics, and morphology of natural language, and the relations among these. Most of her work has centered on Danish and English. She has worked on noun incorporation, definiteness marking, expletive constructions, relative clauses, and copular constructions (the last is the topic of her dissertation). She is currently working on verb phrase anaphora, coordination of pronouns, and various kinds of complex DP structures, the latter as part of ongoing joint work with Jorge Hankamer (UCSC) on the morphosyntax of definiteness marking in the Scandinavian languages. She has a long-standing interest in philosophy of language and is affiliated with the UC Berkeley Department of Philosophy.
