Head of Near Eastern Languages Program / Semitic Linguistics

Dr. Tania Notarius

The focus of my actual research is the study of ancient Northwest Semitic verbal syntax. The project started during my academic sojourn at the Martin-Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg, Germany 2018-2019 as an Alexander von Humboldt Experienced Researcher. I concentrate on less-studied syntactic issues, such as the syntax of participles (active and passive), the marking and expression of passive voice, the formal and semantic scope of the middle voice domain, and the syntax of infinitive phrases. A special emphasis is laid on investigating the consistent linguistic differences between the language of poetry and prose.
