Présentation générale

Research interests

  • Syntactic theory
  • Syntax of Semitic languages
  • Syntax of Romance languages
  • Dialectology
  • Logical form
  • Psycholinguistics

My main area of interest is syntactic theory. I have worked on the syntax of Semitic languages and in particular, on Modern Hebrew. In the last few years, I have taught and carried out research in Romance syntax and Romance dialectology.

My most recent work is concerned with the following three questions:

  • How to explain subject-object asymmetries in a non ECP-based framework?
  • How to square the cartographic approach with the locality of categorial selection?
  • How to state the conditions on null subjects without recourse to specific licensing conditions onpro?
