Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures

Academic discipline: L-LIN/01 Historical and General Linguistics

Short Bio

Marianna Bolognesi’s research focuses on lexical semantics and multimodal communication, and in particular on the relation between language and thought, and on the semantic representation of word meaning in mind. Currently she is working on the representation and processing of abstract concepts (e.g., "excellence", "democracy", "joy", that is, concepts denoting intangible entities) and on the role of metaphor and metonymy in the process of conceptual abstraction. She uses experimental methods that bridge psychological investigation with computational (corpus-driven) modelling.
