Giuseppina Silvestri’s research interests include comparative and historical Indo-European and Romance linguistics, and especially (morpho-)syntactic variation in Italo-Romance and Greek varieties, as well as topics in theoretical syntax (through the parametric approach) and glotto-genetics, and issues ascribable to the phonology-syntax interface (RF, propagation, metaphony) and the syntax-semantics interface (syntactic reduplication and free relatives).
