Sascha Alexeyenko

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Graduiertenkolleg "Nominal Modification" at the University of Frankfurt and a member of the Formal Semantics group (⇢ Thomas Ede Zimmermann). Before that, I worked at the German Studies Department at the University of Vienna (⇢ Katharina Hartmann) and at the Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Osnabrück, in the Computational Linguistics group (⇢ Peter Bosch). You can download my full CV here.

In April 2015, I defended my PhD thesis on the syntax and semantics of adjectival and adverbial manner modification, which has been supervised by Peter Bosch at the University of Osnabrück (committee members: Peter Bosch, Louise McNally, Roberto Zamparelli, Hedde Zeijlstra). The thesis can be downloaded here.

My research interests lie in the area of semantics, syntax, and the syntax-semantics interface. More specifically, I am interested in issues concerning manner modification, adverbs as a lexical class, linearization in the nominal phrase, semantics of gradable adjectives, quantification in event semantics, genericity and habituality, morphosyntax and semantics of nominalizations. For written work on some of these topics, see research.
