Dr Stergios Chatzikyriakidis
Visiting Research Fellow
Dr Stergios Chatzikyriakidis holds a BA in Classics (specialized in Linguistics) from Aristotle University, an MSc in Computational Linguistics and a PhD in Linguistics from King’s College London. His PhD thesis concentrates on the syntax of four dialects of Modern Greek from both a synchronic and a diachronic perspective using the King’s-based Dynamic Syntax framework.
He has published various papers on clitic positioning, clitic climbing, person restrictions and left and right dislocations. His current research involves developing a unified theory of the right periphery in Greek with an emphasis on mismatch phenomena (case/gender mismatches), developing a full diachronic story of clitic development of Modern Greek and its dialects, defining a unified event/situation semantics analysis of restructuring verbs as well as a full account of clitic climbing in Italian and Romance in general and pursuing a case theory combining traditional theta-theory with tree modalities.
