Jean-Pierre Koenig

University at Buffalo

Jean-Pierre Koenig is Professor of Linguistics at the University at Buffalo. He received his BA from the Ecole Normale Supérieure and his PhD in Linguistics in 1994 from the University of California, Berkeley. He has taught at the University at Buffalo since 1994, with visiting appointments at the University of Paris-7. His research has focused mostly on the nature of lexical knowledge. He has worked extensively on the organization of lexical knowledge, argument realization, aspect, verb meaning, and how argument structure is used in sentence processing. Recently he has explored how uniform the syntax-semantics interface is cross-linguistically. His collaboration with Karin Michelson on the morphosyntax and semantics of Oneida is part of this larger research project.
