Vieri Samek-Lodovici

Dr Vieri Samek-Lodovici is a Reader in Linguistics at the Department of Italian. Like other theoretical linguists, he is interested in understanding which components of human language are universal, i.e. present across all human languages. His current research concerns the interaction of prosody and syntax, i.e. how intonation affects word order and vice versa. He is about to publish a book with Oxford University Press entitled The Interaction of Focus, Givenness and Prosody. A Study of Italian Clause Structure.
