Pekka Posio

I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Ghent from September 2015 to January 2016. I am currently appointed as an associate professor at the University of Stockholm.  My research interests lie within the fields of usage-based and cognitive-functional linguistics. In my postdoctoral research project Human impersonals in Spanish and Portuguese: towards a usage-based account (2014-2016) I examine the various ways of expressing unspecified human reference in discourse. My research interests include the semantics, pragmatics and sociolinguistcs of pronouns, person forms and other referential devices in spoken discourse.
