The book investigates the little studied syntax of the dialects of southern Italy. In addition to providing a descriptive account of a wide range of syntactic phenomena , the discussion shows how the model of language embodied in Chomskya s (1995) Minimalist Program can be profitably extended to the study of the syntax of southern Italian dialects, focusing on such topics as Case--marking and finite, infinitival and participial complementation.
