My thesis project is a typological study of comitative constructions and related phenomena in the Circum-Baltic area. The aim is to provide a comprehensive description and analysis of comitative constructions in the languages belonging to this area with an special emphasis put on potential contact-induced phenomena. I am also interested in the factors that influence the distribution of various comitative markers within languages, that is, the problem of variation within the domain under discussion.
