Attività Didattica

Attività di Ricerca

I studied Classical Languages (BA, 2006) and Linguistics (MA, 2008) at the University of Pavia, where I also received my PhD (2012). In my dissertation I carried out a synchronic and diachronic study of Experiential constructions in Latin (now published as Experiential Constructions in Latin, Brill, 2014). I visited the University of  Bergen and the University of Oslo, where I was involved in historical and typological research projects on argument structure constructions featuring non-nominative subjects (IeCASTP Project) and pragmatic resources, including information structure and anaphoric relations (PROIEL Project) in ancient Indo-European languages, respectively. During this period, the focus of my research has been on Latin syntax and verbal semantics (case, semantic roles, argument structure constructions and their productivity, with a focus on experiential and impersonal verbs), with special attention on argument realization, alternation, and change.

Besides historical linguistics, my research interests concern also historical pragmatics, with regard to Ancient Greek, Latin and Italian. Working as a Post-Doc research fellow within two PRIN Projects at the University of Bergamo, I have focused on pragmaticalization processes leading to the development of Discourse and Pragmatic Markers in these languages, and on linguistic strategies used by writers to position themselves and others in ancient texts (especially in Plautus’ comedies). More recently, I have joined a research group at the University of Eastern Piedmont working within a Project on Greek/Latin textual bilingualism, and therefore adding historical sociolinguistics as a further line of my research.

I am also interested in the application of cognitivist approaches to Latin, with regard to argument alternation between prepositions and cases, ontological and orientational metaphors in the functional domain of experience, and in Embodiment theory, with reference to metaphors and pragmaticalization processes.
