Angela Marcantonio

Angela Marcantonio is associate professor of Linguistics, Finno-Ugric & Hungarian Studies, at Sapienza University of Rome. Her main fields of research are historical, descriptive and typological linguistics, applied to the Indo-European languages, the Finno-Ugric (/Uralic) languages, and the (assumed) linguistic connections between the respective proto-languages. In particular, she has conducted research on Finnish, Hungarian and the Ob-Ugric languages, and the linguistic correlations between Hungarian and Turkic, now summarized in the volume: The nature of the Hungarian vs Turkic linguistic correlations: is Hungarian really a ‘proto-typical’ Uralic language? (Rivista di Studi Ungheresi 16 Rome, 2017).
