Janice M. Aski is Professor and Director of the Italian language program at The Ohio State University. She specializes in foreign language pedagogy and historical Italian/Romance linguistics. Her research in foreign language pedagogy has explored a variety of topics, such as testing, teaching reading at the elementary level, how first-year Italian textbooks and grammar practice activities reflect current research in second-language acquisition, and a comparison between traditional and hybrid Italian language courses. Her publications in historical Italian/Romance linguistics focus on the social, pragmatic, and cognitive aspects of phonological and morphosyntactic change.
