These articles provide new explorations into phonological patterns
attested in the minor Romance languages ('dialects') spoken in
Italy. The goal of this book is both theoretical and empirical. First,
it aims to introduce non-Italianists to the phonological structures of
the Italian dialects, including northern Gallo-Romance dialects,
central and southern dialects, plus a Francoproven´┐Żal dialect spoken
in southern Italy and a Catalan dialect spoken in Sardinia. Second,
the collection provides readers with sophisticated analyses of complex
and poorly understood and under-studied phonological phenomena. Over
half of the articles contain data collected by the authors, and most
of the data have not been available in English language
publications. The richness of the empirical material and the
sophistication of the theoretical analyses make this collection a
particularly important contribution to both phonology and Romance
language studies.
