About Elisabet Engdahl

Professor of Swedish


After having completed an MA at Uppsala University, I studied linguistics at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. It was there that I discovered that Swedish is an interesting language from a general linguistic perspective. My PhD thesis from 1980 dealt with the syntax and semantics of questions in Swedish and was supervised by Barbara Partee.

I was post-doctoral fellow in Cognitive Science at Stanford University, research fellow at the Max-Planck-Institute for psycho-linguistics at Nijmegen and at Lund University and assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and reader at the Centre for Cognitive Science (nowadays part of the School of Informatics) and the Human Communication Research Centre at the University of Edinburgh. In 1995 I came to the University of Gothenburg and in 2004 I became professor of Swedish.

I was a member of the Swedish Research Council between 2000 and 2013. In 2008 I was elected to the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities and in 2010 to the Royal Society of Arts and Sciences in Gothenburg. I became honorary doctor at Lund University in 2012.

Research interests:

Comparative Scandinavian grammar, spoken Swedish, intonation, word order, theoretical linguistics, e.g. HPSG, Optimality theory, Construction Grammar. I am involved in the ScanDiaSyn network where 10 research groups collaborate on Scandinavian dialect syntax.

Motto: Not a day without an example.
