Dr. Cornelia Ebert appointed to the University of Frankfurt


We are pleased that our colleague Dr. Cornelia Ebert has been offered a professorship in Semantics at the Goethe University in Frankfurt. She has worked on the semantics/pragmatics interface, in particular information structure, quantification and indefiniteness. Ebert has done pioneering work on the role of language-accompanying gestures and their role in linguistic communication. She has also worked on this topic at ZAS in the project: "The Pragmatic Status of Iconic Meaning in Spoken Communication: Gestures, Ideophones, Prosodic Modulations (PSIMS)".
