Raphaella Zanuttini

Linguistics

Raffaella Zanuttini’s interest in linguistics arises from the fact that it studies a component of human nature with methods that approach scientific rigor. She  feels privileged to study an aspect of the human mind that is still largely mysterious, the knowledge of language, and enjoy the challenge of trying to model it using a theoretical framework that is still developing, the generative framework.
