Ask a Linguist

Le lingue e il linguaggio sono da sempre oggetto di domande e curiosità di ogni genere: dai dubbi grammaticali, all’origine delle parole; dalle traduzioni, alle discussioni su termini di volta in volta di fresca attualità; von Fragen aus der Welt der Bildung bis hin zur Arbeit im Bereich der Sprachwissenschaft. Diese und viele andere Themen werden in der Rubrik Ask a Linguist behandelt, die vom Institut für Angewandte Sprachforschung von Eurac Research herausgegeben wird.

Every month, one or more language-related questions are selected and answered in a clear, concise and accessible manner.

You too can help the blog grow! If you have a language-related question, send it to linguistics@eurac.edu and we will post our answer here!
