W. Juliane Elter is a doctoral student at the Chair of English Linguistics (A IV) at the University of Mannheim. She studied Linguistics at the Goethe Universität in Frankfurt am Main on BA level and completed her Masters degree in the programme “Sprache und Kommunikation” at the University of Mannheim in 2018. Her thesis was written in affiliation with the DFG-project “Borrowing of Argument Structure in Contact Situations” and dealt with a possible language-contact approach to the rise of the to-dative in Middle English. In her research, she is interested in synchronic and diachronic syntax and semantics, language change and language contact phenomena as well as in corpus linguistics in English and German. Currently she supports the institute in teaching and assists in the organisation of a DFG-research unit on the topic of the Tolerance Principle: Modelling second language acquisition and change, which the group will apply for in 2019.
