My field of research is variation and change of German, both from an empirical and a theoretical pespective. I focus on Old High German which is one of the source languages of our CRC project B04 ‘Register emergence and register change in Germanic’, along with Old Swedish. Lately, I experimented with variation-based grammar writing and grammar visualisation for Historical Linguistics, using the early Old High German prepositional phrase as a case study. My research is based on data from the Old German Reference Corpus, a resource about which I deeply care. I have a keen interest in theories of language change, a research area to which I posed the idea of language as a structure of social systems.
