Romance linguistics (French and Italian)

The team for French and Italian Linguistics welcomes you to our website!

Our research and teaching interests focus on longitudinal studies of language variation in older age using the LangAge corpora, as well as grammaticalisation processes and language change using diachronic corpora, such as the APWCF corpus. In addition, we research and offer courses in multilingualism, computer-mediated communication and narrative analysis.

We organise international events and cooperate with the Centre Language Variation and Multilingualism, the Network Digital Humanities at the University of Potsdam and the Italian Centre at the Free University of Berlin.
