PROFILE

After completing a major in Physics (Carleton College, Minn. USA), I went to Germany where my “linguistic turn” took place, leading to a PhD degree from the University of Bonn. Since then, linguistic communication has been at the heart of my research and teaching interests. Topics that I have published on lie at the intersection of pragmatics and sociolinguistics and include telephone talk, classroom interaction, politeness, phatic commun(icat)ion, cross-cultural pragmatics, subjectivity, language and gender, etc., as well as aspects of gender studies.

Since 1980 I have been working in the Linguistics Department at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh), where I served, among other things, as Chair of the School of Philology and as Director of the Postgraduate Studies Program. At the same time, I have been engaging in the Women’s Studies Group and related activities at my University and within the broader European context (e.g. the ATHENA network). I have also taught and given numerous talks at other universities and international conferences. In the last years, I have been teaching in the Modern Greek Department of the Freie Universität Berlin as a visiting professor (WS 2011-12, WS2012-13, WS 2014-15).

My recent publications include the collective volumes

as well as the Special Issue of the Journal Gender and Language, on Gender and the Greek Language (2015).

Currently, a great part of the research I do revolves around my project Greek talk-in-interaction and Conversation Analysis and the Corpus of Spoken Greek at the Institute of Modern Greek Studies (M. Triandaphyllidis Foundation). In this context, I launched a new book series entitled Studies in Spoken Discourse and a biennial Conference on spoken Greek (press here for information on the most recent one on questions-answers in Greek talk-in-interaction)
