Evie Coussť

Evie Coussť 2014 I am an associate professor of linguistics. I currently work as a researcher and associate head of department at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden). I was previously affiliated to the universities of Stockholm, Ghent and Antwerp.

My research interests are language variation and change studied from a functional perspective. I have mainly been working on emerging verb constructions, word order variation and phonological variation in Dutch.

My current research project "The rise of complex verb constructions in Germanic" is sponsored by the Swedish Research Council (2018-2021). It aims to integrate insights from grammaticalization research, construction grammar and contrastive corpus linguistics.
