Dr G.T. Schoenmakers (Gert-Jan)

I am a postdoctoral researcher in an NWO-funded project on the processing of pronouns of address in Dutch, German, French, and Spanish. My work addresses questions and claims from theoretical linguistics using experimental methods. I am very interested in the way in which judgment data can be interpreted and which insights they offer into the grammatical system. In my dissertation I investigated claims from the theoretical literature about (A-)scrambling (object shift) in the Dutch middle-field, making use of various experimental methods, but I also enjoy writing about other syntactic phenomena.
