Project title: “Linguistic classification and its mechanisms. A comparative analysis in Italian, English and Arabic”.
My research project will explore the characteristics of linguistic classification in three different languages - Italian, English and Arabic – through the analysis of a subtype of binomial constuctions, namely the type "N1 prep N2". The aim of the project is to identify the pragmatic and morpho-syntactic behaviour of these constructions through a corpus-based analysis.

Areas of interest: Cognitive Linguistics, Comparative Studies, Syntax, Semantics, Pseudo-partitive constructions, Classifiers.
