Evie Coussť

Evie Coussť 2014 I am an associate professor of linguistics employed as a researcher at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden). I was previously affiliated to the universities of Stockholm, Ghent and Antwerp.

My research interests are language variation and change studied from a functional perspective. I have mainly been working on emerging verb constructions, word order variation and phonological variation in Dutch.

I am currently involved in the research projects "The rise of complex verb constructions in Germanic" (Swedish Research Council, 2018-2021) and Cassandra: Explaining and predicting short-term language change in Modern Swedish" (Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg Foundation, 2021-2023).
