She wrote her dissertation on the rise of configurationality in Indo-Aryan, for which she received the Wilhelm von Humboldt Award 2015 of the German Linguistic Society as well as an award from the German National Academic Foundation.


Well organized, clearly and engagingly written, and offers a fine blend of theoretical relevance and close textual analysis [Reinoehls] arguments are thought provoking and well presented, and definitely demand close consideration by scholars of Indo - Aryan and anyone interested in grammaticalization and Indo - European diachronic syntax. * Geoffrey Haig, Language *
