English Language and Linguistics

Cornelia Neubert, M.A., Dipl.-Ing.



I am a postgraduate research assistant and lecturer in English Linguistics.

Short curriculum vitae

I studied agriculture at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (Dipl.-Ing. agr.). After some years working in this sector, I studied English and American Studies at Chemnitz University of Technology with a specialisation in linguistics and TESOL. In 2008/09, I spent 6 months at the University of Glasgow as an ERASMUS student. In 2010, I completed a 6 week internship at the University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur, where I helped compile texts for ICE-Malaysia. In August 2011, I finished my M.A. thesis on English reflexive pronouns. I have been an ELL member at Chemnitz until WS 2016/17.

Research interests

I am particularly interested in phonetics and phonology, semantics, dialectology, and language variation and change.
