semantics interface is sought. Research topics include
(i) reconstruction effects in relative clauses, clefts,
(ii) degree ('amount') relatives and comparatives

(2) Project 5 "Predicative constructions"

and primarily interested in the interface between syntax, 
semantics and the lexicon is sought.
