  • Mario Alinei (born 1926 in Turin, Italy) is an Italian linguist, professor emeritus at the University of Utrecht, where he taught from 1959 to 1987, currently living in Impruneta, Italy. He is founder and editor of Quaderni di semantica, a journal of theoretical and applied semantics. Until recently, he was president of Atlas Linguarum Europae at UNESCO. Alinei has authored hundreds of publications and is a well-known scholar in the field of dialectology. Alinei was a pioneer in the use of computers in linguistics. According to Pavle Ivić, "Alinei is one of the not so numerous European linguists who already in the early sixties were willing and able to apply the results of technological innovations to the study of language." After his retirement, beginning in 1996, Alinei has also become known as one of the main proponent of the Paleolithic Continuity Theory that Indo-European languages originated in Europe during the Upper Paleolithic.
