Martina Lampert received her Ph.D. in Slavic linguistics and her Habilitation (post-doc thesis) in English linguistics and is a Senior Lecturer/Privatdozentin at the Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany. As a cognitive semanticist, her research has focused on attention phenomena in language; currently she specializes in multimodal and register analysis of the quotative system in English and the study of parenthetical constructions.
Kurt Stocker (Ph.D. 2003, University of Zürich) is a Senior Lecturer (Privatdozent, PD) at the University of Zürich. He investigates spatial, temporal, and causal cognition from an experimental-psychological (ocular and neural) as well as from a theoretical-psychological and linguistic (cognitive-semantic) point of view. He also applies his basic research to diverse areas such as clinical psychology and pro-environmental action.
