Rivista di Grammatica Generativa : Research in Generative Grammar (RGG) Collection home page


The Rivista di grammatica generativa/Research in Generative Grammar (RGG) is one of the earliest journals in Europe to be specifically devoted to the dissemination of research within the generative paradigm.
Its volumes feature articles by many influential researchers (Noam Chomsky, Richard Kayne, Larry Hyman, Jim Higginbotham, Henk van Riemsdijk, Ian Roberts, and many others).
The Rivista di Grammatica Generativa (RGG) was founded by Francesco Antinucci and Guglielmo Cinque in 1976. From 1978 to 1986 it was directed by Francesco Antinucci, Guglielmo Cinque and Luigi Rizzi. The current editors, from 1987, are Guglielmo Cinque and Luigi Rizzi.
While articles in languages other than Italian were also published before vol. 19 (1994), starting with that volume the journal has published and continues to publish almost exclusively in English. The publication was suspended from 2011 to 2013.
From volume 36 (2014) RGG has become an open access journal hosted by the Linguistic Electronic ARchive, of the Center for Language Sciences of Ca’ Foscari University, Venice.
All articles published in the journal are subject to an anonymous peer review process.
