About

Isabella Chiari (b. 21 oct 1971) am assistant professor in "La Sapienza" University of Rome, I currently hold courses for undergraduate students in General linguistics and graduate courses in Computational linguistics. I graduated in Philosophy (Università "La Sapienza" di Roma) in 1994/95, and received a PhD in Philosophy of Language (Università di Palermo) in 1999/2000. I further completed my education with summer schools, courses, workshops in various Italian and international institutions (Paris, Boston - MIT / Harvard, S. Marino, Tuscan Word Centre). My main research interests lie at the intersection between linguistics and philosophy of language. Presently I am concerned with themes about scientific, methodological and theoretical issues in quantitative linguistics and corpus linguistics and on linguistic redundancy in speech performance (speech errors and slips of the tongue) and understanding processes (slips of the ear) and their implications in language teaching and learning. I am mostly involved in methodological and theoretical issues in computational and statistical linguistics for textual analysis (multiword expression analysis and extraction, measures for neologisms, interaction between lexicographic word senses and ontologies) and language learning (tests of language understanding and computational lexicographic tools) and sign language representation forms. I held courses in Università per stranieri di Siena, Università "Magna Graecia" in Catanzaro, Università di Genova, from 2002/2003 to 2005/2006in Scuola superiore per Interpreti e Traduttori of Roma and since 2001/02 in Università "La Sapienza" of Roma. I also held seminars, lessons in various Italian and foreign universities and I have given speeches in Italian and international congresses. I wrote essays and articles among which the monographs: - Ridondanza e linguaggio (Roma, Carocci, 2002) - Informatica e lingue naturali (Roma, Aracne, 2004) - Introduzione alla linguistica computazionale (Bari, Laterza, 2007) And co-edited the following books: - De Mauro & Chiari (eds). Parole e numeri. Analisi quantitative dei fatti di lingua (Roma, Aracne, 2005). - Bolasco, S., I. Chiari, L. Giuliano (eds). 2010. Statistical Analysis of Textual Data. Proceedings of Xth JADT Conference, Milano, LED, vol. 2. - Pettorino, M., A. Giannini, I. Chiari, F. Dovetto (eds.). 2010. Spoken Communication, Cambrige Scholars Publishing. She participated in numerous research projects, like CLIPS (Corpora e Lessici di Italiano Parlato e Scritto), coordinated by Federico Albano Leoni, Università "Federico II" di Napoli.
