Research

I am a specialist in cognitive linguistics, syntax and semantics, as well as
contrastive linguistics (Finnish–Estonian). Most of my research is
based on the methodologies of cognitive and functional linguistics. I have studied the semantics of Finnish local-case setting adverbials, the
case alternation in the marking of Finnish subject, object and predicate
adjective phrases and the effects of this alternation in the
clause-level meaning, aspect, clause constructions and verb semantics.
My work in contrastive linguistics includes analyses on word order in
written Finnish and Estonian, as well as works on Finnish and Estonian
adposition constructions and clause types.


My current research projects are: 1) COMET, COnstrual of means and time,
a project focusing on the grammar and aspect of Finnish motion
metaphors of time, funded by the Academy of Finland (2015–2020),
together with scholars from the University of Helsinki, 2) an
international typological project on partitive cases and related
categories, coordinated by prof. Silvia Luraghi (Pavia, Italy), and 3) a
large Finnish–Estonian–Hungarian cognitive linguistics project, with
participants at the Universities of Turku, Helsinki, Tartu and Budapest
(ELTE).
