Current research

Physical objects recalled via words, image and sound in forensic science movies: modelling the cross-modal construction of co-referential chains

This project revolves around language use and multimodal communication, and in particular around cross-modal references to objects in on-screen forensic science movies. The focus is how words, image and sound elements are linked to one another to constitute anaphoric markers in co-referential chains with respect to the perception of the viewers. The analysis implements semantic, pragmatic, and cognitive frameworks, in combination with concepts related to telecinematic discourse.
