Rasmus Steinkrauss studied German Linguistics and Literature and Scandinavian Studies, focusing on Linguistics, at the universities of Hamburg and Berlin (Germany) and Tromsø (Norway). During his study, he became interested in usage-based theories of language and in the question where language comes from – in individuals as well as a whole.
After his M.A., he earned a scholarship at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) to write a PhD dissertation on frequency and function in first language acquisition, using Cognitive Linguistics as a theoretical framework.
Since July 2009, Rasmus Steinkrauss works as a postdoctoral researcher in the FUNDENG project, directed by Assoc-Prof. Dr. Gudrun Ziegler. The project aims at mapping and analyzing the acquisition of English as a lingua franca by primary school children in Luxembourg.
Rasmus Steinkrauss was a member of the organizing committees of the TABU general linguistics conference in 2006 and the ANELA applied linguistics conference in 2007.
