I am a theoretical linguist, also interested in data analysis and statistics. I am currently working at the Center for Corpus and Experimental Research on Slavic Languages “Slavicus” (University of Wrocław).
My research focusses on the interfaces between syntax and other linguistic domains (semantics, pragmatics, discourse, phonology). I worked on language variation, both in a diachronic and in a synchronic perspective (with a focus on heritage languages and bilingual speakers).
If you are looking for Alberto Frasson (literary critic), Alberto Frasson (musician) or Alberto Frasson (psychiatrist), you got the wrong guy.
My surname is an oxytone word: the stress is on the last syllable. The o is pronounced as a closed /o/, while the last n is normally pronunced as a voiced velar nasal /ŋ/.
