He has written extensively on syntactic theory and the comparative syntax of Germanic and Romance languages. His publications have focused on serial verbs in African and Sinitic languages, the existential construction, questions and relative clauses. He is currently a researcher at the Institute of English Philology, Freie Universita"t, Berlin.
