Research in Finnish
The study programme in Finnish is research-based as the programme's associate professor Pia Päiviö contributes to the research in the areas of her teaching.
Pia Päiviö's research concentrates on Finnish language –past and present. She is especially interested in different grammatical phenomena, for example expression of terminativity in Finnish language. Additionally, she is working with making Finnish syntax more accessible for foreign learners of Finnish language. She is actively participating in developing new methods to teach Finnish for Foreigners more communicatively.
