My research interests lie in the investigation of non-standard varieties of German. In particular, I am focusing on learner varietes as well as on digital everyday language used in computer-mediated communication (CMC), e.g. on sociolinguistic aspects of the use of registers in CMC. I have been responsible for the creation of the multilingual CMC corpus DiDi, a corpus linguistic collection of facebook texts of writers from the multilingual province of South Tyrol. Currently, I am working on the description of written German dialect varieties in CMC.

I have also worked on the creation of several learner corpora in recent years, such as LEONIDE and KoKo, and combine writing research and corpus linguistics in my research activities.

I am also the managing editor for the new Eurac Research Learner Corpus Platform PORTA.

Research interests:

  • writing research
  • language acquisition
  • computer-mediated communication
  • corpus linguistics
  • sociolinguistics

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
