Svitlana Antonyuk, PhD

I am currently a postdoctoral scholar (university assistant with doctorate) at the Institut für Slawistik at Karl Franzens Universität Graz, Austria. My research focuses for the most part on issues of argument structure, quantification and the interfaces between syntax and the other modules of grammar as well as the mapping to Information Structure. I have so far worked primarily on Ukrainian and Russian, both East Slavic languages. At Uni Graz I am a member of two research groups, the Distributed Morphology group, led by Prof. Boban Arsenijević of the Institut für Slawistik and the Arbeitsgruppe Informationsstruktur, led by Prof. Victor Edgar Onea Gaspar of the Institut für Germanistik.

My most recent projects involve work on Object Shift in Ukrainian (in collaboration with Dr. Roksolana Mykhaylyk at Amazon), the Realization of Givenness and Focus in Discourse Configurational Languages and the relation between aspect and argument structure in East Slavic.
