Dr E Jamieson is a postdoctoral research fellow on the AHRC-funded Vulnerable Native Grammars project.

E received their PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 2018, investigating non-canonical questions at the syntax/pragmatics interface using data from Scots varieties.

They subsequently worked as a postdoctoral researcher on the AHRC-funded Scots Syntax Atlas (scotssyntaxatlas.ac.uk) project at the University of Glasgow, before being awarded an ESRC postdoctoral fellowship, held at the University of Edinburgh.

Research interests

I am broadly interested in syntactic variation and change, and the consequences that phenomena like dialect variation and grammatical attrition have for models of generative grammar. Previously I have worked on a number of topics in syntactic theory using evidence from dialect variation, including non-canonical questions such as tags; verb raising; demonstratives, and negation.

I am also interested in developing methodologies to best tap into syntactic variation.

Research project(s)

The AHRC have awarded them a research grant of £578,951 for their project, “Vulnerable native grammars: the effects of limited input in native language attrition”.
