     Konstantia's research focuses on syntactic theory and comparative syntax, especially within Principles & Parameters and Minimalism. Her main interests are description and theoretical analysis of empirical phenomena that lie at the interface of morphology, syntax and semantics. She conducted research on the syntax of Modern Greek, with a focus on sentential complementation, Control, and Comparative Correlatives. Dr. Kapetangianni is also interested in the child acquisition of aspects of syntax that interface with semantics, pragmatics and discourse. Her research has examined how early in their development children exposed to null subject languages, acquire specific syntactic properties of their language: realization of null vs overt subjects, wh-questions, focused and topicalized constituents.
