Vera Felder is a graduate student in the Germanic Linguistics program. She received both her BA (2013) and MA (2015) in Linguistics from San Francisco State University. Her research has concentrated on socio-linguistic and cognitive linguistic aspects, primarily focusing on differences and similarities in lexical structure across languages. She is interested in the semantic analysis of German prepositions, particle and prefix verbs, and how insights of cognitive linguistic research can be applied to foreign language instruction.
