CV

I am a linguist working at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Nice. Previously, I held research and teaching appointments at the Universities of Zurich and Padua (where I obtained my PhD, in 2006) and was awarded two Marie Curie Fellowships from the European Commission to work at the universities of Frankfurt am Main and Bristol. My research focuses on the comparative grammar of the Romance languages, in particular on the morphosyntax of pronominal systems.

Subject and impersonal clitics in northern Italian dialects 1

The present contribution focuses on the interaction between the impersonal si/se and subject clitics in northern Italian dialects. In western dialects, si co-occurs with a non-agreeing clitic form (while it cannot co-occur with object clitics in the so-called passive-si construction); in Venetan dialects, the co-occurrence of se and subject clitics is degraded/ungrammatical, while in Friulian the combination is acceptable, but the subject clitic is dropped. I argue that the peculiar behaviour of northern Italian dialects results from the Multiple-Agree relation holding between T, sarb, and the argument of passive-like constructions (D'Alessandro 2007), coupled with language-specific constraints on the realisation of T's features (Calabrese & Pescarini 2014).

Stressed enclitics are not weak pronouns A plea for allomorphy

The paper compares a morphophonological and a syntactic approach to stress shift and enclisis/proclisis asymmetries. The former analysis envisages the co-occurrence of multiple allomorphs with the same featural content, which are distributed in accordance with phonological rules. The latter analysis, by contrast , is based on the hypothesis that alternations are due to the co-occurrence of items belonging to different classes. I argue that the syntactic analyses put forth so far are not superior previous morphophonological accounts. I acknowledge that the synchronic distribution of allomorphs does not result from productive phonological rules. Nonetheless, this is not per se a valid argument in favor of syntactic, class-based accounts, which must be advanced in compliance with Occam's razor.

Pronoun systems across Romance

resume
this article deals with the syntax of personal pronouns and focuses on clitic pronouns, which are one of the major sources of variation across the Romance languages. For each parameter of variation (e.g. placement, climbing, doubling, interpretation, etc.) the article seeks to establish descriptive generalisations based on a rich array of data gathered from present-day varieties and historical vernaculars.

Clitic clusters in early Italo-Romance and the syntax/phonology interface

resume
This paper deals with the morpho-phonology of Italo-Romance clitic clusters. It argues that morpho-phonological processes (i.e. apocope, prosthesis, etc.) are sensitive to both the syntactic make-up of clitic clusters and their prosodic structure. The first part of the paper aims to support the hypothesis that a clitic cluster is a Foot, daughter to a recursive Prosodic Word (Peperkamp 1995, 1996, 1997). The second part of the paper accounts for the distribution of the apocopated clitic l (

The evolution of Lat. ILLUM in old Veronese: apocope and related phenomena*

Diego Pescarini
article
Vox Romanica, Francke/Narr, 2011
annee_publi
2011
resume
I testi in Veronese antico presentano una notevole varietà di esiti dal lat. illum dovuta all'in-terazione di numerosi processi fonologici. In questo contributo mi soffermerò principalmente sull'apocope, discutendo poi alcuni fenomeni ad essa collegati: la prostesi e la degeminazione. Nel par. 2 discuterò le condizioni di estensione della regola di apocope, che, inizialmente limi-tata alle parole toniche, si estende al clitico lo a partire dai casi di enclisi o quando lo si trova in coda di un nesso clitico (es. me lo → mel'). Mostrerò come tale estensione del dominio dell'apocope sia facilmente spiegabile nel quadro della teoria prosodica di Selkirk 1995, men-tre una gerarchia prosodica esaustiva e simmetrica come quella proposta da Nespor/Vogel 1986 fatichi a cogliere alcune rilevanti asimmetrie fra enclisi e proclisi. Alla luce di tale impostazione nel par. 3 discuterò una proposta sull'origine della prostesi (l → el) proponendo che la prostesi intervenga per prevenire il disallineamento fra struttura prosodica e sintattica provocato dall'apocope di lo: qualora essa si applichi ad un pronome proclitico (non in coda di nesso), questo diventa infatti prosodicamente enclitico alla parola precedente: *tuti-l diso → tuti el diso ('tutti lo dicono'). Infine, nel par. 4 discuterò alcune alternanze dovute alla presenza sporadica di forme con ll, per es. elo vs ello. Cercherò di argomentare che le grafie con ll rappresentassero una conso-nante geminata osservando che dopo ll l'apocope non è mai ammessa.

Elsewhere in Romance: Evidence from Clitic Clusters
auteur
Diego Pescarini
article
Linguistic Inquiry, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press (MIT Press), 2010

2010
resume
This article focuses on sequences of Romance clitics wherein a pro-nominal form is replaced by another clitic exponent, which is prima facie morphologically unmotivated. Bonet (1991) and Harris (1994) among others have argued that these synthetic clusters can be due to the insertion of an elsewhere clitic: a default, nonspecified item that is inserted as a last resort whenever the insertion of other clitics is ruled out. In this article, independent pieces of evidence gathered from Italian and Italian dialects are shown to support this hypothesis.
