Dr Sandra Kotzor
I am a post-doctoral researcher in the Language and Brain Laboratory (part of the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics) and my current research areas are speech processing (especially phonological and morphological processing) and adult bilingualism.
Even though I now work mainly within neurolinguistics and psycholinguistics, my linguistic career started out in lexical semantics. My doctoral dissertation was on the conceptual nature of lexical opposition (with a comparison of English and German) and I maintain an interest in lexical semantics as well as in lexicography and translation studies.
I teach the general linguistics paper at Prelims (Paper VIII) and several subject areas for the FHS general paper (XIII) as well as FHS special option papers (XII) in psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics. I have previously taken students for Prelims Grammar (Paper X) and am currently teaching German linguistics at FHS level (Paper Vii).
In addition, I supervise students for the Linguistics Projects or extended essays in my specialist areas.
