Within the framework of the network program University Campus Fryslân the Frisian Academy is looking for a PhD student research into changes in the conjugation of Frisian verbs
This project is a part of a partnership with the ACLC (Amsterdam Centre for Language and Communication) of the University of Amsterdam.
The purpose of this study is twofold. The (more) recent changes in the conjugation of Frisian verbs should be inventoried and accounted for. Within this complex system the ratio between external and internal forces: the great pressure that Dutch exerts on Frisian on the one hand, and the analogical restructuring of the verb paradigm to maintain a transparent relationship between form and function on the other hand, should also be investigated.
- a master’s degree with excellent grades in linguistics or in linguistics of an individual language;
- experience in and affinity with empirical research involving language-corpora and digital data collections;
- experience in and affinity with the analysis of large digital data collections using existing software (databases, spreadsheets and mapping software);
- working knowledge of Frisian at (near-)native level;
- good academic writing and presentation skills;
- good interpersonal and organizational skills;
- strong interest in a scientific career
