Стажировка в Школе лингвистики
My name is Chiara Naccarato and I am a first-year PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Pavia and University of Bergamo.
In 2012 I graduated from the University of Milan with a Master’s degree in Languages and Cultures for International Communication and Cooperation (specializing in Russian and English).
The focus of my PhD research will be on compound words in Russian and my research interests are mainly connected to word-formation, morphology and corpus linguistics.
I spend a three-month research period at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow (School of Linguistics), from March to June 2015.
The main goals of my stay in Moscow are the following:
- to work on the annotation of compounds in Russian within the Russian National Corpus, which I believe is an extremely useful tool for linguistic research studies in Russian;
- to have the opportunity to consult and be advised by Russian linguists about my work;
- to attend conferences and take courses which could help me enrich my knowledge about Russian and linguistics.
In the first few weeks I have spent in Moscow, I have already found an extremely lively cultural environment, which gives me the opportunity to attend seminars and lectures about linguistics almost every day, and this is undoubtedly a great chance for a student of Russian linguistics like me.I am sure I will benefit from this experience at the Higher School of Economics and I hope to establish enduring collaborative relationships with the members of the School.
