Abstract:

This book addresses the problem of word-initial gemination
(raddoppiamento sintattico) in Italian, a popular topic
of phonological study. Incorporating data from various
Italian dialects along with historical evidence to enhance
our picture of this process, the analysis accounts for the
complexities of the phenomenon, including the different (and
seemingly unrelated) environments, as well as the varied
behaviour in the dialects, using Optimality Theory. The
interaction of word-initial gemination with lenition, stress
and vowel length illuminates these very processes and the
phonological constraints that drive them. Finally, the
historical development of the process is explored and
incorporated into the OT analysis.
The dissertation will be of interest not only to
Italianists and Romance scholars, but to phonologists,
historians and generalists as well.
