Language is neither chaos nor perfect order (after Michael Halliday)
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Monika Kavalir
I am passionate about language and its role in society. Starting out with undergraduate studies in English and journalism, I obtained all of my degrees, including my PhD in 2014, at the University of Ljubljana, and I continue to teach and work here while maintaining a lively interest in how linguistics is done and taught elsewhere. My interests span a range of topics, including “hardcore” grammar (primarily syntax), sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics, systemic functional linguistics and stylistics. What they all have in common, however, is that I am interested in how language is shaped and used by people in the real world, both historically and in modern times.
Some examples of theses I supervised or co-supervised:
