Onur Özsoy


linguist / teacher

I am a final year Master of Education student of Geography and English at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. I've also been working at Artemis Alexiadou's RUESHeL group since March 2017. There, I became a linguist. My main interests broadly are psycholinguistics, language acquisition, heritage languages, syntax, morphology and their interfaces with semantics, and language teaching. In February, I joined Christoph Schroeder's lab in Potsdam for a project on Turkish discourse particles. A month prior, I started to teach three classes (2 Geography, 1 German) at Alternativschule Berlin which is a progressive education school in the North of Berlin. Lastly, I've been working as a first aid instructor with napaso since 2014.

I am also on Twitter and the OSF.

What’s new?

Research: Florian Schäfer will present a project of ours (together with Daniil Bondarenko) at WCCFL 39. I took care of the experimental programming, design, analysis and stats. We're currently also writing up two projects; one is about allomorphy as a predictor in lexical processing, and the other is about fluency as a predictor in heritage language acquisition.

I proudly co-organized the 68th StuTS (international student linguistics conference mostly hosted in Germany) with ten other organizers. It took place online from 19-21 November 2020 and we had around 700 registered participants and numerous brilliant international student talks and discussions. Excited for StuTS 69 in Leipzig and StuTS 70 in Vienna.

Frederic Blum, Ivona Ilić and I started a podcast (called InterFacing Language) about syntax, semantics and other linguistic topics. Each episode, we interview a different linguist about their research and why it matters. Listen to all episodes of InterFacing Language here.

Write me if you're interested in my research, or anything else related to me. My email is onur.oezsoy@hu-berlin.de..

If you're also a student and can't stop thinking about linguistics, feel cordially invited to join our open linguistics group which I'm the main organizer of. All info at www.klesekreis.de..

Here's a pic of me feasting on some delicious Çiğ Köfte (arguably the best and healthiest vegan fast food in the Mediterranean) in my parents' hometown (Şarkışla):
