Leibniz-DAAD Research Fellowships
Are you a postdoc with an excellent track record? Would you like to spend a year living in Germany and conducting research at a Leibniz institute? Then apply for a Leibniz-DAAD Research Fellowship! During your research stay you will obtain broad-ranging insights into the German research scene, pursue your research in collaboration with renowned academics from around the world and receive extensive supervision. The fellowships are awarded by the Leibniz Association and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

DAAD Grant-Holder at ZAS
Dr. Anton Stepikhov from St. Petersburg State University is a grant-holder from DAAD and will stay at ZAS from 15th September to 15th December 2016. His research project investigates the process of expert manual annotation of unscripted speech and aims to explore the effect of annotator’s personality on speech segmentation.


New publication
This volume, which has been edited by the ZAS researches Werner Frey, André Meinunger and Kerstin Schwabe and just been published by John Benjamins, deals with sentential proforms and their relationship to their associated clauses. By providing syntactic, prosodic, semantic, psycholinguistic and corpus-based support, the book underpins the claim that there exist different sentential proform types in German and Dutch, that these proform types correlate with different verb classes, and that their associated related clauses are located in different syntactic positions.
