Piia Taremaa in SKY Journal of Linguistics

Posted on February 12, 2014 by

First-year PhD student Piia Taremaa is already starting to make a name for herself, with an article in the latest issue of the SKY Journal of Linguistics.

The paper, on Fictive and Actual Motion in Estonian: Encoding Space, deals with the use of linguistic elements describing motion to depict static situations, e.g. The road goes from Tartu to Tallinn. Piia shows that the encoding of space in Estonian is mainly determined by the verb type.

Watch out for more papers from Piia – the SKY is almost certainly not the limit!
