Uit het juryrapport:
Benedikt Szmrecsanyi really has no weaknesses. He is regarded as an authority all over the world. His work during the last five years at FRIAS has really helped to raise the image of FRIAS; together with his colleague at FRIAS, Martin Hilpert, these two ”junior” scholars have virtually changed the whole scenery of, in particular corpus research, but coupled with a thorough and deep understanding of language, and language variation and change.
Szemrecsanyi has also convincingly shown that he has the capacity and willingness to supervise and promote other researchers and PhD candidates.
