Kristina Hülk is a research assistant and PhD student in the project B03 “Register knowledge in Ancient Egypt”. She studied Northeast African Archaeology and Cultural Studies as well as Art History at Humboldt University Berlin. Her main research interests include the morphology, syntax and semantics of the hieroglyphic-Egyptian language, the history and archaeology of Northern Sudan as well as Semiotics and multimodal communication of ancient artefacts and material. For almost four years she tutored students in Middle Egyptian script and language. Since 2016 she additionally has been working at the German Archaeological Institute as part of the Qatari Mission for the Pyramids of Sudan and regularly joined the archaeological fieldwork at the Royal Cemeteries of Meroe in Northern Sudan. She recently graduated with a master thesis about the interaction of spatial structure, architectural forms, and relief representations of the Pyramid Chapel Beg.

We define ‘register’ as recurring variation in language use depending on the function of language and on the social situation. Informed by rich data, we aim to better understand and model the knowledge involved in situation- and function-based use of language register. In order to achieve this goal, we are using complementary methods and measures. In the review, we start by clarifying the concept of ‘register’, by reviewing the state of the art, and by setting out our methods and modeling goals. Against this background, we discuss three key challenges, two at the methodological level and one at the theoretical level: 1. To better uncover registers in text and spoken corpora, we propose changes to established analytical approaches. 2. To tease apart between-subject variability from the linguistic variability at issue (intra-individual situation based register variability), we use within-subject designs and the modeling of individuals’ social, language, and educational background. 3. We highlight a gap in cognitive modeling, viz. modeling the mental representations of register (processing), and present our first attempts at filling this gap. We argue that the targeted use of multiple complementary methods and measures supports investigating the pervasiveness of register phenomena and yields comprehensive insights into the cross-methodological robustness of register-related language variability. These comprehensive insights in turn provide a solid foundation for associated cognitive modeling.
