Dr. Nantke Pecht

I am a sociolinguist with roots in Spanish literature and media, and English and American Studies, and interests in spoken language corpora, (morpho)syntax, language and dialect contact, processes of language mixing and fusion, contact varieties, language variation and change, and language related to processes of identity, migration and mobility. I have recently finished my PhD on the use of personal pronouns and progressive aspect in a Belgian Dutch-German-Limburgish contact variety. Since 2021, I am engaged as a postdoctoral researcher in the working group of Prof. Dr. Evelyn Ziegler in the Department of German Linguistics at the University of Duisburg-Essen.
