Laboratorio di Linguistica
The Laboratorio di Linguistica “Giovanni Nencioni”, named after its initiator, was founded in the late Seventies with the primary aim of supporting equipment-based phonetic research. Since its origin, however, it was intended to be the nest of broadly-conceived linguistic investigation, rather than of phonetic investigation in the narrow sense. The integration of different inclinations and research lines has soon become one of the lab’s distinctive features, together with the intellectually fertilizing atmosphere created by the side-by-side presence of teachers, students, technicians and visiting scholars, as dictated by the SNS tradition. The initial research mission has gradually extended, over the time, in the direction of psycholinguistic investigation, computational linguistics and (more recently) neurolinguistics and field-work. The lab’s facilities have been adapted (resources permitting...) to these changing and increasing needs. In addition, collaborations have been established with specialized centers, willing to share their equipment and know-how with the lab’s scholars.
