The English language in Italy: linguistic, educational and professional challenges

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The project focuses on the linguistic penetration of English into the Italian language through contact-induced lexical and phraseological borrowings. The objectives of the project are to collect candidate Anglicisms in Italian from newspaper archives and existing corpora (e.g. La Repubblica Corpus and ItWac ) as well as from new, purpose-built corpora, and assess their status of currency and representativeness for the inclusion in the "Dizionario di anglicismi nella lingua italiana". The research will also address the influence of English on general language and in specialized domains. New, updated glossaries of specialized terms in several domains of technical and scientific discourse (aviation, economics, banking, information technology, etc.), accompanied by Italian translation equivalents, will also be compiled as an aid for translation work.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
