Main research interests:
Experimental phonetics and dialectology
 
Short Curriculum:
I obtained my undergraduate degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures at the Università degli Studi di Lecce (current Università del Salento) in 2001 (with a dissertation in General Linguistics discussing the difficulties surrounding the translation of poetry; supervisor : Mirko Grimaldi). In 2004 I undertook a master’s degree in phonetics at the Laboratoire de Phonétique et Phonologie (L.P.P.) - Université de la “Sorbonne Nouvelle” – Paris 3 in Paris (France) with a dissertation in dialectology detailing an acoustic analysis of the vowel system used by the dialect of Lecce, supervisor: Annie Rialland. At present I am in the fourth and last year of a research doctorate in phonetics at the aforementioned University in conjunction with the Centro di Ricerca Interdisciplinare sul Linguaggio (C.R.I.L.), undertaken at the Università del Salento (Lecce, Italy) with funding from the European Community. I have been awarded a mobility scholarship for graduate students in conjunction with Italian Universities by the Università Italo-francese (VINCI Programme 2005) and another scholarship for research doctorate of Apulia Universities in the programme P.O.R. Puglia 2000-2006.

Projects:
Dialectology and experimental phonetics: an acoustic, articulatory and perceptive analysis of some central Salentinian varieties (Apulia, southern Italy)
(Ph.D.Dissertation)

My current research deals with Romance dialectology, particularly the stressed and unstressed vowel systems found in the Salento, region of Apulia (a region in southern Italy where one of the most interesting Romance vowel systems can be found). I will perform a detailed acoustic analysis of central Sallentine varieties and the “retroflex” or “cacuminal” consonantal sounds (acoustic, articulatory and perceptive analysis) which characterise this area. The objective of my research is to define a particular linguistic area through experimental phonetic methods to clarify linguistic and historical processes by which the Romance vowel system (seven vowels and four opening levels) developed into the Sicilian vowel system which characterises the Salento area (five vowels and three opening levels) as well as the linguistic and historical processes that saw the Latin group -LL- and consonant clusters plosive(s) + trill develop retroflex/cacuminal sounds.

Supervisors: Mirko Grimaldi (C.R.I.L. Lecce) e Annie Rialland (L.P.P. Parigi)
