French Studies

Director of studies, French Studies

I'm associate professor of Romance languages, in particular Italian, with a linguistic profile, and Assistant Director of the languages French, Italian and Rumanian, and the course Mother tongue tuition and study guidance. I teach different courses of Italian at all levels as well as the course Mother tongue tuition and study guidance, especially language acquisition, and I am the main supervisor of a phd student in Italian linguistics.
My research field is language acquisition and bilingualism, mainly cross-linguistic influence, and code-mixing in bilingual speech.

I have written about nouns and adjectives in the Italian language and about the relationships between the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and morposyntactic levels in language acquisition, A1-C2, and one about the acquisition of Italian and French at international schools. My current research, under review, regards null subjects in the acquisition of written Italian.

Recently, I have written about nouns and adjectives in the Italian language and about the relationships between the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and morposyntactic levels in language acquisition, A1-C2, and one about the acquisition of Italian and French at international schools.
