Associate Professor in French Linguistics, University of Oxford
The main focus of Dr Sam Wolfe's research is on French and Gallo-Romance, though he has also published on the syntax of other Romance varieties. He is currently writing a monograph entitled Syntactic Change in French and co-editing a volume on connections between Germanic and Romance languages alongside a handbook-style treatment of the Verb Second property, entitled Rethinking Verb Second. A monograph on word order in Medieval Romance languages will appear shortly with OUP, entitled Verb Second in Medieval Romance.
In October 2018, he was awarded funding from the TORCH International Partnership Scheme for his project A Comparative Perspective on the Languages of the Veneto, in collaboration with the University of Padua.
