Current research

In my post doc project, which is funded by the Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies, I investigate the use of ditransitive verbs and the prepositions till 'to' and åt 'to, towards' in Sweden Swedish and Finland Swedish. Previous research has shown that the use differs in the present-day varieties and in the project, I investigate when, how and why these two varieties of Swedish started to behave differently.
