Short biography

Saverio Dalpedri received his education in Pisa, Freiburg, Cologne and Göttingen, where he was trained in both Indo-European studies and general linguistics. He specializes in historical-comparative linguistics, with a focus on the Greek language in its development from Mycenaean to modern dialects. His research interests concern the verbal morphosyntax of the ancient Indo-European languages: he has devoted his past research to topics like verbal reduplication, motion events, resultative participial constructions, and non-canonical alignment patterns in various languages. In the first phase of MagEIA, he will carry out a comprehensive analysis of the linguistic features of Ancient Greek magical texts as attested from all geographic areas relevant for the Centre of Advanced Studies.
