Prof. Dr. Oliver Ehmer

I am a full professor in Romance Linguistics at the University of Osnabrück (Institut für Romanistik und Latinistik). My research focuses on language in its context of use, mainly in oral communication but also in written media. I am inspired by interactional, cognitive and usage-based linguistic approaches.

  • Language variation and change
  • Digital humanities, language corpora, corpus technology

My current projects focus on:
