Theoretical Adequacy, Human Data and Classification Approaches in Modelling Word Properties, Word Relatedness and Word Classes [bib]
Philosophische Fakultšt, Universitšt des Saarlandes, June 2008.

My habilitation has been cumulative, so its core part is an introduction that brings together a selection of publications from previous years with respect to their common topic. If you are interested in the work, you can download the introduction and the bibliography. The publications that are part of the thesis are listed below. Reviewers: Matthew Crocker, Manfred Pinkal, Massimo Poesio (external), Hans Uszkoreit

In 2013, I transfered my habilitation to the University of Stuttgart.

Reviewers: Jonas Kuhn, Grzegorz Dogil
