Forschungsschwerpunkte:

* Information structure in language, encompassing different subdisciplines of linguistics such as syntax and prosody
* Theoretical and experimental perspectives on language, including the study of both adult and child language
* Documentation and analysis of Contemporary Hasidic Yiddish grammar and development of pedagogical tools for the language

"My theoretical and experimental research on the syntax-prosody interface and information structure in language has helped further our understanding of these phenomena in human cognition, which is of particular societal interest, as some atypical populations, such as people living with autism, are affected with respect to these phenomena. My work on Contemporary Hasidic Yiddish contributes to our knowledge and understanding of an emergent variant of this minority language, recognised by the European Charter of Regional and Minority Languages. Minority languages and more generally linguistic diversity is highly relevant from a societal and cultural perspective in Europe and worldwide. My work raises awareness and fosters communication with people from Hasidic communities in Europe and worldwide." (Kriszta Eszter Szendrői)
