PhD project

The aim of my PhD project is to write a grammatical description of Patani, a language of the South Halmahera-West New Guinea (SHWNG) subgroup of the Austronesian language family, with a special emphasis on clausal organisation. Patani is poorly described, and an important part of the project is therefore to document this language through fieldwork in Indonesia, where it is spoken. This PhD project is affiliated with the research project Where does grammar come from? The cognitive basis of transitivity and grammatical relations.
