Dr. Songül Gündoğdu received her MA and PhD in Linguistics from the Department of Linguistics at Boğaziçi University in Turkey. In her doctoral thesis, she investigated the event structure and argument structure of simplex and complex predicates in Northern Kurdish (Kurmanji) with a specific emphasis on the syntax of different types of arguments (e.g. postverbal goals, adpositional objects and nominal element of certain noun-verb complex predicates). Her main areas of research interest are morphosyntactic aspects of Iranian languages – specifically Kurdish, such as the Ezafe constructions in Iranian languages, case and ergativity, argument structure and negation. She conducted joint research on the comparative analysis of linking markers in Kurmanji and Turkish, and has presented two papers on the same topic so far. She is a native speaker of Kurmanji and Turkish, and she is fluent in English.
