After classical studies (Latin, Greek and French literature), I wrote my PhD thesis on semantics and grammaticalization in Romance languages. I now work as a researcher at the CNRS (Lattice laboratory, ENS), and specialize in the study of
<strong>constraints on language structure and language evolution</strong>, working mostly on (a) the
<strong>expression of space </strong>in language and (b) the
<strong>renewal of grammatical structure</strong>, and focusing on
<strong>Romance languages</strong>, but with an eye on current typological studies and other European languages (Germanic, Slavic & Hungarian).
