“Traces of History”, a project involving Francisco J. Fernández-Rubiera, received a $1.1 million grant from the Research Council of Norway.

The project, led by Christine Meklenborg Salvesen of the University of Oslo, will investigate why certain traits in a language remain unchanged for centuries while others disappear. The researchers will focus on the development of Germanic and Romance languages from the Middle Ages until today.

Fernández-Rubiera’s contribution to the project relates to different aspects found in Romance languages and their connection with those found in Germanic.

“Traces of History” is funded for three and a half years and will be bookended by two conferences in Oslo.
