PD Dr. Haas, Florian

I have been at the FSU Jena since 2009, teaching linguistics courses and examining in all study programmes (B.A., M.A., 'Magister' and teacher training). My research interests are recent morphosyntactic changes in English, contrastive linguistics, typology and usage-based construction grammar. Most recently, I have worked on human impersonal pronouns in English and submitted the results as a postdoctoral lecture qualification ('Habilitation').
