Virginia Volterra spends much of her time researching Linguistics, Language development, Developmental psychology, Gesture and Cognition. While the research belongs to areas of Linguistics, she spends her time largely on the problem of Cognitive psychology, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Natural language. Her work in Language development tackles topics such as Nonverbal communication which are related to areas like Psychometrics, Follow up studies and Early language.
Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Speech production and Media studies. Her study looks at the intersection of Cognition and topics like Comprehension with Object and Communicative intent. The Language acquisition study combines topics in areas such as Language transfer, Second-language attrition, Comprehension approach, Lexicon and Vocabulary.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Linguistics, Gesture, Sign language, Developmental psychology and Cognition. Her Gesture research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Communication, Nonverbal communication, Action, Language development and Cognitive science. Her work in Sign language addresses subjects such as Written language, which are connected to disciplines such as Hearing loss, Bilingual education and Reading.
Her biological study deals with issues like Object, which deal with fields such as Child development. The Cognition study which covers Cognitive psychology that intersects with Dissociation. As a member of one scientific family, Virginia Volterra mostly works in the field of Language acquisition, focusing on Comprehension approach and, on occasion, Second-language acquisition.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Linguistics, Sign language, Italian Sign Language, Gesture and Action. When carried out as part of a general Linguistics research project, her work on Sign, Sociolinguistics of sign languages and Language acquisition is frequently linked to work in Cultural influence, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Her studies deal with areas such as Vocabulary, Speech communication, Nonverbal communication and Spoken language as well as Language acquisition.
Her research in the fields of Manually coded language overlaps with other disciplines such as Empowerment and Minority group. Virginia Volterra combines subjects such as Language development, Human language, Communication and Cross linguistic with her study of Gesture. Her research integrates issues of Representation, Cognitive psychology and Multimodal communication in her study of Action.
Her primary scientific interests are in Linguistics, Sign language, Gesture, Italian Sign Language and Comprehension. Virginia Volterra studies Linguistics, focusing on Sign in particular. The study incorporates disciplines such as Picture naming, Cognitive psychology, American Sign Language and Communication in addition to Gesture.
Her Comprehension study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Manually coded language, Language acquisition, Vocabulary, Comprehension approach and Spoken language. Her Language acquisition research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Meaning and Nonverbal communication. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Theory of mind, Cognition is strongly linked to Developmental psychology.
