Research

I am a Romance Linguist specialized in Iberoromance Linguistics. I am interested in the contact between languages and the results of it. Two main fields of my research are Jewish Spanish and Spanish, Portuguese and Guaraní in South America. I have been studying extensively the language situation in the Guaranitic area. I am one of the directors of the Linguistic Atlas Project known as ALGR (Atlas Lingüístico Guaraní-Románico) whose objective is to provide answers to a series of linguistic questions concerning the Guaranitic area (Paraguay, Northeast Argentina, and parts of Brazil in the borders of Paraguay).

 

Areas of Specialty

  • Language contact between Spanish and Amerindian Languages
  • Bilingualism in Paraguay
  • Linguistic policies/Language and Society in Latin America
  • Judeo-Spanish
  • Romance Languages and Greek
Graduate Training

Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster/Germany, Universidad de Granada/Spain, Università di Trento/Italy
