Nico Lehmann is a PhD student in the SFB project “Disentangling cross-linguistic and language-specific aspects of register variation” (SFB Register A06) in the research group “General Linguistics” at the Department of German Studies and Linguistics, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

His research is centered on typology at the interface of syntax, semantics and pragmatics, especially in the area of information structure. Topics include linguistic variation of syntactic constructions, reference, causality, and incorporation in Yucatec Maya, Cabécar, German, and English, among others. Methodologically, he is concerned with the construction, processing, and use of corpora, as well as experimental data acquisition. His current focus is on how registers can be studied across languages. He looks at the phenomena of right-peripheral sentence elements, e.g. dislocations, as well as the use of referential expressions in relation to speaker-internal variation in formal and informal contexts.
