Andrej Malchukov studied Germanic philology and linguistics at the university of St-Petersburg. He is affiliated with the St.-Petersburg Institute for Linguistic Research ( Russian Academy of Sciences), since 2002 as a senior researcher at the department of Altaic languages. His dissertations (‘candidate’ thesis from 1990 and ‘habilitation’ thesis from 2002) deal with the morpho-syntax of the North Tungusic Even. Apart from descriptive work on Siberian (in particular, Tungusic) languages, his main research interests lie in the domain of morpho-syntactic typology. He is a member of the St-Petersburg Typology Group. Since 2006 he has been taking part (together with Bernard Comrie and Martin Haspelmath) in a DFG funded project on the typology of ditransitive constructions based at MPI EVA, and a follow-up project on the typology of valency classes.
Ditransitive constructions in the world's languages
In this project, we are studying the grammatical properties of ditransitive constructions (i.e. constructions with an agent, a recipient, and a theme argument) in a broadly comparative perspective. We are compiling a database with relevant information on about 200 languages, and we plan to publish this database as well as a monograph that presents the results of our inquiries. [more]
