Research groups

El léxico del español en su historia (LEHist) Lexicon of Spanish language in its history (LEHist)
The Research group focuses on the evolution of Spanish lexicon, with special attention paid to technical and scientific terminology. Its main lines of research are: 1) lexicological and lexicographical analysis of textual corpora, including a contrastive and multilingual approach; 2) analysis of the intercultural and interlinguistic relationships that throughout the centuries have contributed to the development of Spanish lexicon by means of language interference and contact phenomena, i.e. loanwords, calque and semantic calque.
All’interno della rete internazionale di gruppi di ricerca GNOME (https://www.gr-gnome.eu/) coordinata dall’Università di Roma La Sapienza, il gruppo Gnome-UniVr svolge la propria attività di ricerca nell'ambito della fraseologia dello spagnolo con particolare attenzione per la sua dimensione diacronica e per la fraseografia bilingue.
Traducciones científicas y técnicas de interés hispánico (TraCTIH) Scientific and technical translations of Hispanic domain (TraCTIH)
The Research group focuses on scientific and technical texts translated to and from Spanish during the Modern Age. The main research lines include: 1) macro- and microtextual analysis of source texts and their translations, taking into consideration secondary aspects such as the social and cultural context as well as the status of the translator; 2) the analysis of Spanish technical and scientific terminology, also in relation to other European languages.
