Syntax of Italian Dialects by Christina Tortora
Book DescriptionThis volume addresses issues in the syntax of a wide array of Italian dialects (including several Rhaeto-Romance varieties: Paduan, Sicilian, Bellunese, Piedmontese, Calabrian, and Italian itself). Edited by Christina Tortora, this collection consists of contributions from 12 of the leading scholars in the area of Italian dialect syntax (Andrea Calabrese, Anna Cardinaletti, Guglielmo Cinque, Diana Cresti, Guiliana Giusti, Richard Kayne, Nicola Munaro, Mair Parry, Cecilia Poletto, Giampaolo Salvi, John Trumper, and Raffaella Zanuttini. The chapters in this book offer both novel analyses of familiar data, as well as analyses that are themselves altogether novel. The contributors - many of whom gathered much of the data themselves - offer insights into how Italian dialect data informs our understanding of such issues in syntactic theory as clausal structure, pronominal syntax, verbal morph-syntax, subject clitics, object clitics, interrogatives, imperatives, restructuring, and the syntax-semantics interface. This latest edition to the Comparative Syntax series will be of interest not only to researchers in Italian dialect and Romance syntax, but to scholars and advanced students interested in syntactic theory.
