Short bio:

Juliano Desiderato Antonio is associate professor at Universidade Estadual de Maringá, Brazil. The theme of his master’s degree dissertation (1998) was preferred argument structure in narratives in Brazilian Portuguese. His doctorate thesis (2004) concerns the rhetorical structure of narratives in Brazilian Portuguese and its manifestation via hypotaxis. He conducted a post-doctorate investigation (2011) to characterize some Functional Discourse Grammar’s parameters as signals of hypotactic rhetorical relations.

From a functional point of view his investigations approach discourse structure of diverse genre, spoken language and clause combining and grammar and discourse.
