A team of researchers at HSE, including myself, has recently been awarded a highly competitive and prestigious grant by the Russian Science Foundation. Over the next few years, we’ll be investigating non-finite constructions in a number of severely understudied languages of Russia (Avar, Bagwalal, Udi, Agul, Hill Mari, Meadow Mari, Northern Khanty, Chukchi). The project’s title is When the verb isn’t a verb: Non-finite constructions in the languages of Russia, and you can read more about it here.
I’m Pavel Rudnev, and this is my personal website. I’m a research fellow and lecturer in linguistics at HSE University in Moscow. My main area of interest is syntax and its interfaces with sound and meaning. In particular, my current research revolves around the structure of nominal expressions, agreement, case and verbal morphosyntax in East Caucasian languages, and the syntax-to-phonology mapping in Russian Sign Language.
