EN. My main interest is to make critical reflections on the ways of theorising syntax. This led me to test (in my MA thesis) various frameworks by confronting how they analyse a common empirical topic, i.e. Greenberg's Universal 20. The results so far are encouraging, but more needs to be done. I suggest to focus on problems and exceptions to the various predictions made about U20; any new proposal should be based on empirical data and on previous studies of any theoretical fashion.

IT. Il mio interesse principale è condurre riflessioni critiche sugli approcci alla sintassi teorica; pertanto nella mia tesi magistrale ho confrontato varie analisi dell'Universale 20 di Greenberg, con risultati incoraggianti che intendo approfondire nel mio dottorato di ricerca.
