Lara Reglero



Associate Professor
Professor Reglero (Ph.D., University of Connecticut) specializes in syntax. Her research focuses on interrogative clauses, their interaction with discourse-related notions such as focus and topic, and the adjacency requirement between the interrogative word and the verb. The languages she has studied in more depth are Spanish and Basque, but she has drawn numerous cross-linguistic comparisons using other languages, such as English, French, and a variety of Slavic languages.
