Liliane Madeleine Victor HaegemanARB (born 1 July 1954) is a Belgian professor of linguistics at Ghent University. She received her Ph.D in English linguistics in 1981 from Ghent University, and has written numerous books and journal articles thereafter. Haegeman is best known for her contributions to the English generative grammar, with her book Introduction to Government and Binding Theory (1991) well established[by whom?] as the most authoritative introduction on the Principles and Parameters approach of generative linguistics.[failed verification] She is also acknowledged for her contributions to syntactic cartography, including works on the left periphery of Germanic languages, negation and discourse particles, and adverbial clauses. As a native speaker of West Flemish, her research has also touched upon the comparative study of English and West Flemish in terms of the subject position and its relation to the clausal structure.
Haegeman has held full-time teaching positions between 1984 and 2009, focusing on domains of English and general linguistics, syntactic theory, comparative syntax, historical syntax, and the syntax of Germanic languages. In addition to her current position at Ghent University (2018), she has also taught in University of Geneva (1984-1999) and Université Charles de Gaulle, Lille III (1999-present).
