Axel Palmér is a PhD student at the Centre for Linguistics.
Fields of interest
Within Indo-European linguistics, I focus on questions such as the position of Indo-Iranian and Balto-Slavic in the family tree, as well as historical phonology and morphology of Indo-Iranian, Balto-Slavic and Anatolian.
My PhD project about the origin and spread of Indo-Iranian is aimed at combining historical linguistics with archaeology and genetics to reconstruct linguistic prehistory.
Grants and awards
My PhD project titled ”The prehistoric origin and spread of the Indo-Iranian languages: A linguistic test of hypotheses rooted in genetics and archaeology” is part of the programme ”PhDs in the Humanities” funded by the NWO.
