Hi, my name is Marten Stelling. I am a second year grad student in linguistics at the the University of Göttingen.

I am a part of the research project The Landscape of N-Words, where I work on the optionality of negative markers and Expletive Negation.

My non-negation research interests are the syntax and semantics of modal items, and non-negative concord systems. I enjoy working on languages in the Algonquian family, particularly Nishnaabemwin and Arapaho.

My non-academic interests include the Northeast Asian boardgame baduk/go/weiqi and boxing. Attempts to combine the two have so far resulted in failure.
