Abstract:

The book investigates from a comparative perspective various aspects
of the little studied syntax of the dialects of southern Italy. In
addition to providing a descriptive account of a wide range of
syntactic phenomena traditionally overlooked in the literature, the
discussion shows how the model of language embodied in Chomsky'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,
these dialects are demonstrated to present the linguist with a fertile
test-bed in which to explore new ideas about language structure and
micro-variation in the syntax of a relatively homogeneous group of
dialects. The analysis elucidates significant aspects of the structure
of these dialects and shows how a familiarity with the facts of
southern Italian dialect syntax can broaden the empirical domain of
the theory and shed light on important theoretical issues.
