significant contribution to international research development. She has devoted her energies to a key question in linguistics research, namely the relationship between the properties of nouns and verbs. By identifying parallel structures in verbal and nominal phrases, and the rules and laws on which these are based, she has made an important contribution to the ongoing development of models and theories of human language comprehension. In addition to the construction of models for linguistic structures, in her second major research area she has generated fundamental empirical knowledge about the syntax of a large number of individual languages. For example, in a number of very different languages, she has discovered patterns and networks of phenomena that were previously unknown and that contributed to new key ideas about how language works.
Born in 1969 in Volos, Greece, Artemis Alexiadou studied philology and linguistics in Athens and Reading before moving to Potsdam, where she wrote her doctorate and then habilitated in 1999. After receiving a Heisenberg fellowship from the DFG, she was appointed professor of theoretical and English linguistics at the University of Stuttgart in 2002. She combines her successful and prolific research career with active involvement in the organisation of research and academic self-administration. Among other things she is the spokesperson for a DFG-funded International Research Training Group and a Collaborative Research Centre. Alexiadou also draws in large numbers of early career researchers from all over the world.
