Ongoing research

My current research relates to cognitive linguistics, semantics, pragmatics and discourse analysis. These studies examine verbal prefixes, metaphors, metonymies and symbols in political discourse, multimodal presentation of migration in South Slavic media, and impoliteness in online communication and interpreting.

I lead the research group in charge of the project Spatial Constructions in South Slavic: Semantics of Prefixes and Cognate Prepositions that  brings together an international group studying the conceptualization of space in the Slavic languages. Our project focuses on prepositions and verbal prefixes in modern languages; specifically, on prefixed motion verbs and their constructions, and how the semantics of spatial units influence the non-spatial domain.

Research interests

My research interests include (but are not limited to) meaning in language, the relation of language and thought, and identity formation in discourse.

The topics of my published works include semantics, morphology, lexicology, lexicography, morphology, terminology, the relation between logic and linguistics, space in language, discursive formation of cultural identity, and metaphors in discourse.  I have also published on South Slavic literature.
