Giacomo Presotto

[ˈd͡ʒakomo preˈzɔtːo]

I am currently a PhD researcher at Goethe University Frankfurt and part of the RTG on Nominal Modification.


I am mostly concerned with syntactic theory, and how this interacts with principles of performance systems. More in detail, I am interested in how formal models of grammar can predict and interpret psycholinguistic and L1 acquisition data.


My dissertation explores the theory of locality as applied to acquisition and processing of relative clauses.
