Office Hours

Thursday, Hours 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM,   Polo Didattico Zanotto, floor 2, room 24

My main research interests are:

- historical-comparative linguistics, - linguistic typology, - linguistic anthropology

- the philology of ancient texts of the Mediterranean and the ancient Near East.

In particular, I dealt with languages ​​of poor attestation or incomplete decipherment in Anatolia of the second and first millennium, of multilingual texts and of ancient translations and their theories.

Main linguistic topics cover:

-- syntactic alignment, -- information structure

-- the history of linguistic thought, -- metalanguage.

An important role in my research has grammatology, in particular the study of ancient writing systems.
