About

Welcome to the homepage of Stefano Coretta (IPA: [ˈstefano koˈrɛtta]).

I am a graduate student with a degree in Theoretical and Applied Linguistics (M.A.). My area of research is linguistics with a particular focus in phonetics and phonology — the study of speech sounds and their relation with human language.

I’m interested in questions like How do we produce the sounds we use in our daily communication?How do these sounds create a system?What are the attested sound systems of the languages of the world, and why are they the way they are? and What can we learn about human cognition from the knowledge of how sound systems work?
