Research: Central Scandinavian dialectography from a diachronic perspective

Phd student in Linguistics at "La Sapienza" University of Rome, in collaboration with University Roma Tre (curriculum in Historical Linguistics)

Mainly specialised in the diachronic and dialectological aspects of the Germanic and Scandinavian area, with interests ranging from Romance Linguistics (especially concerning Italian dialectology and Dolomitian Ladin) to Indoeuropean, including philology and sociolinguistics as well.

The research project "Central Scandinavian dialectography from a diachronic perspective" is focused on the analysis of the phonetic and morphological features shared by several varieties spoken across the border between Sweden and Norway, respectively in the Dalarna, Jämtland, Härjedalen, Trøndelag and Innlandet regions.
