Sigríður S Sigurðardóttir presents research at CGSW
Graduate student Sigríður S Sigurðardóttir gave a presentation on Friday, June 14th at the 34th Comparative Germanic Syntax Workshop, hosted in Konstanz. Her presentation was titled “Icelandic V3 orders with temporal adjuncts: A comparison with Standard Dutch and West Flemish”, and presented the results of research she has been conducting as part of her PhD coursework. In Icelandic, like some other Germanic languages, the verb is usually ‘second’, meaning it comes immediately after the first phrase. Sigríður has been studying rarer cases where the verb comes third, and showing ways that Icelandic “verb third” is distinct from verb-third other Germanic languages.
