Fields of interest
Within the field of Indo-European linguistics, my main areas of interest are the Anatolian, Greek, Italic and Germanic branches, on all linguistic levels and in all time periods.
My PhD research focuses on Anatolian historical linguistics. The aim of my project is to reconstruct the morphology and the lexicon of Proto-Anatolian, the last common ancestor of the Anatolian languages (Hittite, Luwian, Lycian, etc.). The results may serve as the basis for a comparison of Proto-Anatolian and the last common ancestor of the other Indo-European languages, in order to determine how they relate to each other.
