LINGUISTIC PROFILING

Based on the Gardner and Lambert's matched guise technique, my new study tests the effects of Turkish, American and German accents and its relation to housing discrimination. Both qualitative and quantitative data is investigated in regard to structural patterns of investigative telephone conversations and statistical significant outcomes. The data is generated by my Empirical Methods in Linguistics students from Bremen University.

KANAK SPRAK

I investigate new grammatical, semantic and lexical features of so-called "Kanak Sprak," a migrant youth variety of German.

 

 

 

URBAN SPACE -MEMBERSHIP -PLACE NAMES

I currently look at the collective and individual meaning of spatial temporal expressions in immigrant narratives. In narratives, we speak of the "multiscale nesting of contexts" in which a narrating person has embedded and sustained him- or herself (Streeck& Jordan, 2009). The physical body is hence a heterochronic semiotic device and self-sustaining embodiment of contexts.
