Research groups


Within the international network of GNOME research groups ( coordinated by the University “La Sapienza” of Rome, the Gnome-UniVr group carries out its research activity by focusing on two main guidelines: a) Phraseology and paremiology with a diachronic approach. Study of original historical sources of Hispanic interest, including both lexicographic and phraseographic works (repertories, glossaries, collections of sayings, maxims or idioms) and texts of other textual genres from which to extrapolate, for their subsequent examination, multi-word lexical units and forms of "repeated speech". The aim is to analyse and enhance the historical heritage of Spanish language in this field, as well as its relationship with that of Italian language, while taking into account the context of the time of writing. b) Bilingual phraseography. Study of phraseographic experiences involving Spanish and another language (including Italian and Arabic), also with the intention of putting forward proposals for the improvement of currently available phraseographic resources.
